Beautiful pictures Kathy.

In the last photo you posted, she looks like her sister Irene a little. Love it.

I'm not sure which is the best thread to put this.  However, here's a contemporary account of Ella and Serge's wedding that may interest some people here. It downloads from the NY times as a pdf.

Too bad the photo was Alicky and not Ella. The two other ladies are not Ella either.

You´re right. Looks like a print done acording to 1901 formal pictures.

Yes. An early one of Alicky too, she looks plumpy like after having a child.

One of my favorite photos. : ) It's strange since you can't even see her face but there's something so elegant and graceful about it.
One of my favorites too.  There is such a simplistic innocence about it.

I think Ella would get a kick out of that one.
I'm back on my bull****.

Yes. Ella is not one for sufferage. However I would not be surprised if her sister VMH or niece Louise would support the course.

What a lovely miniature ! Ella looked sad here, but her eyes were very blue.

c1890 - Ella



That's from 1893 year photosession in Darmstadt. There were a lot of group-shotsof the Hesses.

I think this is 1894 at Coburg....................  in 1893 the family gathered at Balmoral

In 1893 the family also gathered at Darmstadt in the end of October including Princess Irene with her husband Henry. It was the meeting when Elizaveta and Sergei thought that future Nicholas II would come to speak with Alix about his feelings..but he didn't come afraid of his strict mother.

Was Minny a strict mother ? Most certainly she was not in the same league with Alicky's grandmother QV. It should be remembered how much pressure QV give Ella not to marry Serge, and to Alicky to marry Eddie.

It didn't say they were Ella. If you zoom in you can read the captions.

I wonder why they posted an image of Alicky instead of Ella ?
