That one is apsolutely amazing, thank you a lot, Dru! :)

Who's that behind them, holding Alexei?

I am not even sure if the baby is Aleksei. Most likely it is. Ahm, Margaret Eager?

That is one of the cutest photos I have ever seen of the big pair. I wonder where it came from.

Everything is truly breathtaking. Nothing I get less tired of then looking at new & rare photos of a happy IF!

Between this, the photos of/from Bob Atchinson at the AP, and the "then and now" photographs you (and others) have spoiled us with Bryndis this is has been a truly special month on this forum for visuals.

Olga and Tatiana dressed up for Alexei's christening, from Romanov Russia Today on Facebook.  Download for full size.

Are those two adorable children, or what?

I must agree. They look adorable in court dress! They must have felt very special!

All these picture from Hessian archive are so fascinating. They have to be among the most intimate, in-formal photos of IF I have seen.

The Darmstadt photos are amazing.  I'd never seen them until now.  My favorite of all is the one of Olga on the Standert, standing in long sweater and chatting with a woman seated with her back to the camera.  It truly is a candid moment quiescently frozen in time.
