Good observation! I don't believe I've ever seen it going from Anastasia to Olga. Considering this is how it was hung for the Romanovs themselves, does this mean that that is the way the photo was intended to be viewed and we've just been seeing it flipped all this time?

Yes I would think so...I often see pictures where I wonder if they are flipped.... and imo it makes a difference.

Empress' Alexandra cabin in Standart.

another thing I just noticed on Alexandra's desk,  on the left hand side,  is a picture of Olga in a sailor outfit,
but it's mounted on a sort of lamp. ( you can see the ornate base) It looks like there are three
other photos so mounted, and so creating a lamp shade of photos...very pretty

It's hard to tell, but you may be right. Perhaps the other photos would be of the other girls during that photo session.

Incredible pics, it would be great that someday the Standart would be reconstructed...

Is that Grand duke Michael on the last picture?

Yes, he is Grand Duke Michael Alexandrovich I think, if I remember correctly I have seen that photo somewhere here on the forum...


I had posted it some time ago in Michael's topic. ;-)
 The first time when I saw that picture (in Beinecke Albums), it was absolutely clear for me that it's Michael Aleksandrovich. I don't understand why he is labeled there as 'some officer'  :/

Exactly, thank you for the reminder.

The problem is that the quantity of wrongly labeled photos around web sites it's considerable, right yesterday I found a picture of Alexander III labeled as Nicholas I...quite a big mistake. :- )

Empress' Alexandra cabin in Standart.
I see a picture there of a girl in a sailor's suit (not that one of Olga). I think that's Anastasia. Must like to see that picture bigger!
Thanks for all the pictures, Douglas and Nena! The Standart really proved to be much like a palace in the interior. wooow!

Amazing colored fotos  by the most wonderful Yelena Aleksandrovna. Endless thank you very much!

Welcome. In fact I am almost pretty certain that is Alexei, in August of 1907 , on Standart:



And there is also one of Olga's as well.

Looking at how someone arranges thier pictures is interesting. This seems similar to AF's photo
arrangements else where. Queen Victoria often always central.
