its me, lol  there actaully both Princess Elisabeth of Hesse, Alix's sister. they're from the Royal Collection UK

lol I knew that! why did I put alix?! silly me.

Maybe because the upper one looks like Alix to me too?

Yea, That's what I thought to. They look a lot alike

Agreed on that one! They certainly do.

Maybe 'rare' as in "rare wine" That is, very fine.

I've seen another pose from the first picture of clockworkgirls' post - how many photos are there from this sitting?

Depends on how you want to count. I have a total of 30 formal photos from the 1904 sitting. But if you mean only poses of OTMAA together, I'm aware of just two. There's also a very similar photo of OTMA without Aleksei on the same couch.

Looks like Anastasia's been photoshopped into that first one!

Yes I posted this on the Little Pair Thread on AN's board and said it looks plainly  like people were removed from around her.
Media back then had no problem with that sort of manipulation oddly lol . It was very likely she could not be seen as well,
so off they go!
