Tatiana Z > WOW! You've done it again! You're amazing! Thank you for bringing Christmas twice this year. : D

Where are you finding these? Is it a Russian Torrent site? or a LJ account, or?

No Maria, it is probably (and what a terrific find!!) a picture of those little parties grand duchess Olga Alexandrovna organized for OTMA at her Petersburg's house.

Thanks for the info matushka.   I echo BlessOTMA's sentiments - I had read much about the little parties OA had hosted for OTMA but had never seen a picture of one the events, so this is special to me.   But, going back to my first thought that it might have been taken at a hunting lodge, I don't recall ever having seen an interior picture of OTMA at Spala.  Do any exist, or is my memory just going bad?

Aloha all!

Has that newest photo been put on the other link yet?  I ask because I can't locate it and once again, I'm getting the frozen, shut down computer when I try to access the link on the one given on the page when I click on the photo......

Stupid me....someday I'll learn more about my computer!

Aloha all!

A huge thank you to "Tatiana Z" for making these photos available to all of us Romanov fanatics (speaking for myself of course!) on the forum!
They are treasures indeed and each photo opens a little window to their lives that we didn't have before....amazing!

And a big shout out to Laura as well, because I couldn't get that darn Russian site to work on my computer, but with her help, the other link she has done
is perfection!!

A great end to the week.....Huzzahs all around!  LOL
