Thanks for posting that because I had never seen it, and Elena looks so Imperial, and exactly like the idea of Vladimirvichi Family pride there. Of course, you can see that in her expression in other photos, but in this one the Court dress and pose helps- along with her expression. What a lovely pearl kokoshik, were not they called? Does anyone have any other pictures of anyone wearing it/ or could direct me to threads that have pictures?

You can go to www.photoarchiv.spb.ru and browse there the Coronation albums of 1896 year. There are many rare and wonderful pictures there.

I tried the link "www.photoarchiv.spb.ru" on two different browsers and got nothing. Is there another way to go about it?

Yeah but how do you do searches? You type in a word and get 100s of results that have nothing to do with what you are searching for?!

Same here. I also keyed in Cyrillic characters for Mariya Fyodorovna and got the same results, nothing that had anything to do with Mariya Fyodorovna :(.

i don't know if this will make much sense, but here goes:

whatever success i've had in finding anything has, generally, been by following the "branches" that pop-out from certain of the site's entries.   

scroll or click on "pre-1917" and 2 or 3 choices pop out from the one you choose.  then 2 or 3 pop out from that etc.  until it's narrowed-down to a specific area such as "Monuments of Architecture".

but whatever road you take to get there, plan on spending most of your time simply looking through thr results it gives you.

I went up to the "persons" search thing and went thru all the pages to find pics (over 400)
Took 3 days to get thru all of them!!!! In some instances you can't just click the back button. You have to start at the very beginning again  :P

Yes, it's the main problem of browsing the site >:(. I prefer to go to the "albums" search option. :)

i've been having some decent luck lately...  wherever you go on the site, and there are multiple pages of images, if you open the image you want to see in a different window (and keeping the previous page open), you can view the image then close that window & go back to the image list in the original window.    and if you continue consecutively (page 1, then page 2, then page 3, then page 4 etc) in one direction, things seem to work pretty well.    but y'all are correct, backing up generally means you have to start over again....

well, that's my tutorial for the day.   it's worked for me, so far  :-)
