Douglas, thank you for the pictures and their descriptions! I've always wondered what--I believe it's Anastasia--is lying on top of in that picture with Olga, so you solved that mystery for me. I've seen many of those pictures before but have never known where on the yacht they were taken.

Douglas,  I add my thanks as well. I just finished Olga's 1913 diary and of course her beloved Standart
is featured prominently. Your pictures brought her descriptions alive to me. It was so beautifully made!

 Thank you  again!

Tsar with back to camera.  This is on the roof of the deck salon.

Here the sailors are playing a game with a long piece of canvas. The sailors pull the canvas up and down while one tries to walk the length.

I am  happy that you are enjoying these photos.  I will post more.  I will also upload some rare photos of the Polar Star on the appropriate thread.

Also will appear photos, plans and a model of the Marti...as the ex-Standart was known in the Soviet era and WW 2.  I will add to these threads as I have time.  I read all of your kind and appreciative comments.  Thank you...!

Empress' Alexandra cabin in Standart.
Nicholas' study in Standart.

Thank you! Such  beautiful quality photos! I like looking to see what photographs they had on display . In Nicholas' study's one can see the formal portrait from thier trip to England. In Alexandra cabin, one can see the portrait , I believe from 1906, of the four girls, but it shows it going  from left to right, from  A to O. It's mostly shown the other way.
