Yes, I'm pretty sure she is on the standard in either 1912-1914.

That's one of my most favorite informal pictures, Tsarevich Alexei fan 13; thanks for posing it!
What's most remarkable in that photo is that she had her hair up although she wasn't 16 yet.

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

Did they not wear their hair up untill they were 16 in that time? It's news to me.

For most girls/ladies, yes.

Wearing hair up symbolizes the coming of age (becoming 16) of a lady that time.

Indeed. A teenager is almost a modern invention. Back then you were a girl and then a young lady...no in between! I love this photo as well. Could have been taken the same day, certainly the same trip. How fitting Marie is holding a camera!

I believe the last one was taken in Finland skerries, in 1913/4.

I love this one

And when he shall die, // Take him and cut him out in little starres, // And he will make the Face of heaven so fine, // That all the world will be in Love with night, // And pay no worship to the Garish Sun.
