Hello all,
few months ago I found very interesting web page about Romanovs, their life and destiny: http://otma.blog.cz/0911/stoleti-poslednich-romanovcu.
It is in Czech language hence it is not very useful for many people but what is amazing about this web page is gallery of colored photographs of the whole family. These photographs were colored by creator of this web page.
Here are some examples, you can find more on this web page.
For those who do not speak Czech here are links directly to photographs of each family member:
Nicolas II: http://otma.blog.cz/1103/kolorovane-fotografie-cara-nikolaje-ii
Alexandra: http://otma.blog.cz/1101/kolorovane-fotografie-carevny-alexandry-fyjodorovny
Olga:http://otma.blog.cz/1003/kolorovane-fotografie-velkoknezny-olgy
Tatiana:http://otma.blog.cz/1004/kolorovane-fotografie-velkoknezny-tatany
Maria: http://otma.blog.cz/1006/kolorovane-fotografie-velkoknezny-marie
Anastasia:http://otma.blog.cz/1009/kolorovane-fotografie-vekoknezny-anastazie
Alexei:http://otma.blog.cz/1010/kolorovane-fotografie-carevice-alexeje
I hope that I placed this to the correct forum thread because it contains also photographs of another persons(not only Olga) but I cannot find place for photos of all family.

Not sure if anyone has seen this. I certainly haven't. A photo of Olga and her sister during their England visit...Anastasia and Olga's faces are most visible.

I've seen it, but only in poor quality.

IMO, Tatiana and Anastasia's faces are visible. Looks like Olga on the ground to me.

You could be right about the girls, Sarushka, but Marie in general looks almost slim, certainly not 'le bon gros tou-tou", the sturdy, full-bodied girl of conventional image, though I know some of that might have come later with puberty.

The picture was actually taken on the north German coast on the way to England, when the imperial family stayed briefly with Princess Irene at Hemmelmark. The man on the right, half cut in half, is the Grand Duke of Hesse, and the girls on the groyne are - according to Mountbatten's identification in a pictorial biography he collaborated on for the 80th birthday he never reached - Olga, Tatiana and Anastasia, left to right. Marie stands below. This seems right to me, based on the height and build of each.
