^ It's a lovely painting. Maybe it's a modern illustration for the book the scan is from.

I couldn't seem to find a thread with this topic, and as this is not a photo....



Alexandra minature portrait painted by Hedda M Stoffregen dated 1899
H. 11.3cm x 8.3cm
In the Hesse collection



All right, I can take a joke, but what's the deal with this photo, from about five years ago?

Rodney, sadly, some image hosting wegpages such as Tinypic, after a few time, re-use some  image links and replace images.

Yes, Carolath , I thought it was something like that. I couldn't tell if the substitution of images was intentional or not, or necessarily meant to be malicious. I only came across it by chance. Obviously it wouldn't have been accepted here as a new post on this topic.
