What a great day it is to be a Romanov buff, right??   So exciting to see these photos, and especially the profile pictures!

How awesome is this! And how cool is it that new stuff keeps coming out periodically, always keeping we Romanov fans on our toes?

Nearly a century later and, for most of us, years after we first became interested in the subject and still there are plenty of things to get excited about!

I read somewhere that the profile pics were the artist's inspiration for the Mosaic Egg? ( http://media-cache-ec4.pinimg.com/736x/16/ad/22/16ad2208564c87a8a5595698d5dbdea5.jpg )
Is that true?

I know I'm really just a big sap and a cry baby but new pictures like these brings tears to my eyes. Our precious OTMA are gone but we are still lucky enough to get new pieces of their lives every now and again.

It's really nice to see the 1914 profile photos of OTMA. I hope we will see more of them in the future. Thank you very much for posting the link!

That's 1914?  :o I thought OT looked too young for that to be 1914.

No, it's 1914. Olga's got her hair up and Tatiana's has grown back.

All of their profiles show such a strong resemblance to each other. Olga and Maria have the same nose, and Tatiana and Anastasia do also.

Oh I don't doubt it. :) I was just surprised.

I’ve been absent for like a century but I didn’t get disappointed with the oh-soo-rare photos in every page in the previous one and in this ! I bow to all of you who shared! I seriously need to buy a new DVD-RW!
