I completely agree, Lanie!  The date of this picture would be extremely helpful in indentifying our mystery gal.  I think that Georgiy posted this picture, but I suppose if a date was listed with this picture, he would have also posted the date ??   ???  I think the years 1913/1914 have been suggested......

If it was 1913/14 then it couldn't be Maria, it'd have to be Olga...  I don't know.  Alexei looks quite young and he seems to have gotten significantly taller towards the end of his life (I guess 1915-1916...I do recall reading that in 1917-1918 he was taller than Nicholas).  So I don't think it was before 1915.  I'm thinking perhaps it COULD be Maria since I looked at the skirts again and the length Anastasia's is looks to be around 1915-16... but the hair makes me think Olga!

It is actually a pretty odd picture! I leaned in close to the monitor and I was looking at it closely (I got some weird looks; I am in the computer lab on campus) and I was studying their faces...and the faces of Alexei and Anastasia don't look a lot like them. And the picture is kind of slanted, almost.

The nose certainly looks more like Maria's in the 'cleaner' version. I can't recall the Encyclopaedia's title - it's at Auckland University, but it translates to something like Encyclopaedia of the Russian Orthodox Church. It's pretty new, and so far the Uni only has the first few volumes. The reason the copy is so bad is that it is a digital photo of the photocopy I took of the page (it also explains the slant as I had to stand it up to stop my shaow getting in it). It wasn't dated, but I have seen photos from the Crimea where Anastasia is wearing a similar style of hat and clothing, which makes me think it must be 1913 or 1914ish, at any rate just before the war. I could be wrong of course, as no doubt they didn't think in 1915 looking at last year's clothing "Oh, that is like sooo 1914!", and chuck it out! As long as clothes fitted, esp. during the war, I expect they'd have kept on wearing, at the very least, favourite items of clothing.

If it is 1913, 1914 it shouldn't be Maria since her hair is up.  Curious!  Still looks like Olga to me.

About our "mysterious" photo (Maria or Olga): in time of War, Alexei was quite all the time wearing as a soldat (especially after he join his father in the Stavka). Before the war and at the beginning, he wear Standart`clothes. So I think it is 1914. But I have seen photos of 1914 where, for some reason Maria had hair up (one on the Standart and other in Livadia). So, I think it is really Maria. The hair are her, as I can understand.

Also, I think Anastasia should have became a photographer...

Or in this case, an actress:

It annyoed me very much in the book The end of the Romanovs by Alexandrov, Victor
there are many rare images, but the names given are all wrong!!! Like one of the Empress, it says its Demidova, and it's in about 1915 too! And one of Tatiana it sayed maria. But worst of all, I don't have the picture, but it's of Anastasia is a flowing dress with long hair standing in front of a train or building, and it says "The last Known Picture Ever taken of Anastasia". The picture is like, from 1914!
I just thought that was really dumb. lol

It does get annoying sometimes, especially when it seems so obvious who the person is or when it was taken.  :P

Does anyone know if this is Maria or Anastasia? It could be anyone of OTMA...look at the forehead. It reminds me of Olga's.
It looks a little like Ana but they were young so I don't know.
