I can now see what Marie is standing on. It's visible in the lower right hand corner between TN and the officer. It's part of the hatch. She's standing in its door way. They might have just come up from below deck.

I think they wore these hats and veils  to help with insects!

Do we know anything more about the photo above you posted BlessOTMA? Year, location (Standart?), occasion?

Love seeing Tatiana's smile. Not so easily revealed at public gatherings. Everyone looks to be in a normal salute and M&A clearly aren't smiling. I wonder what Olga (heading turning towards) might have been saying to her sister then...?

According to the Russian State Archives, the picture was taken the first of July 1914 in Kronstdat, during the opening of the Tsarevich Alexei Nikolaevich dock.

BTW, BlessOTMA thank you very much for posting the picture. I had it but not in very good quality and now that I see it clearer I really like it =)

Thanks for the info! So Maria would have just turned 15. Her hair is up. The standard for that at the time was 16 although I'm aware they let her put her hair up earlier...was it an entire year earlier though?

There are bunch of photos taken at the same ceremony, the GARF clearly explains that those were taken in 1914, and not in 1915, as it was believed before. I'll try to find some more info. on ceremony. Yes, Maria started wearing her hair up earlier. Maybe because she looked older and mature?

I can't believe her sisters wouldn't have complained..."Umm why mother is it that Maria gets to do at 15 what Tatiana and myself had to wait until 16 for?" -- Olga. The Imp I'd think would have pitched a fit as well about not being able to pin the hair up that her sister go to earlier than usual, lol.

I remember that someone (maybe Kalafrana?) once in a thread about young Alix explained that the standart for girls to wear longskirts & pin up their hair was 16, but if they were tall and looked older they could do it earlier, like Alix did (it seems). So i assume this was why maria's hair was up before she was 16.
I clerarly also remember a photo of Maria taken on the deck of the Standart with her hair up - we know the last time they went on the Standart for a cruise was in 1914, the same years of the photo BlessOTMA posted. I think we can so assume that in summer 1914 Maria's hair was already up both in public and private occasions.
This is the photo i'm talking about:

LOL

I was thinking of it too! Something tells me it was a moment of a "carefree and happy" Olga, the mischievous side, and TN is smiling because ON told her something funny!

Must admit, Maria does look lovely with her hair up. :) I love that photo you posted of Maria Sunny, one of my favourites of an older Maria. Thats interesting about what Alix said about the girls pinning their hair up early if they looked older. I'd never heard that before!

Lol, THAT picture. In the debate over whether it's Tatiana or Maria I've always come down firmly on the Maria side, but I think now I might be wrong. And ohsoromanov is awesome, for the record.
