Red Cross Meeting St.Petersburg 1902
« on: August 10, 2004, 08:35:11 PM »
There is an interesting booklet that Clara Burton, a delegate representing the U.S. Red Cross, wrote of the Seventh International Conference of the Red Cross held in St. Petersburg in 1902 which was held under the patronage of the Dowager Empress Marie. She describes several visits one of which was to the Yelagin Palace. Also in early June the delegates met with Nicholas and Alexandra in Tsarskoye Selo. There are four images that were included in the booklet. One is identified as "Empress Alice (Alix), Czarina of Russia" but that is I believe of Ella and is one I have seen before! Can anyone confirm if this is Ella? The last image is the one of the corner sofa that is from Peterhof!

It certainly looks like Ella to me -- the nose especially, and the hairstyle.
