That's definitely possible and wouldn't surprise me. Maria and Olga already looked alike and that photo is not the best quality. I played around with the contrast and such with it, hoping that it would make it easier to identify which sister it was

It could be. Olga was wearing the pearls on that day:

But these outfits were used on numerous days, weren't they? Here are a few more from seemingly different surroundings. Are they the same day or different?





And what year are these from?

One of our yacht experts may have to weigh in on whether these were taken aboard the Standart. If so, then they can be no later than 1914.

IMO, all the photos GDKassy posted were taken in 1914. :-)

I support!
My guess: the 2 last, on the way to the Crimea, so april. The 2 first, in Finland, so july.

Those blouses show up alot of places ...even in captivity ...Alix is wearing one in the wheel chair and  embroidering the garden  pix and the girls are wearing them in one of the sitting at the shed pix under sweaters . Marie also had her hair up in 1914 during their vacations....  ...but I don't think she'd be allowed a jewel in the ear. There is another photo of that scene with the dog where it's plain the GD is thinner than Marie . 1914 for sure imo :)

Which blouses are you referring to, blessOTMA? The ones with the polka dots or the ones with the ruffles on the front?

It seems that the general consensus is that the Grand Duchess in the photo I posted is in fact Olga.

I believe this is Olga. Even when you compare her figure with others in the picture, Maria was broader built.

The one with the polka dots. In the 1917  garden photo with Alexi.... Olga, Imp and TN sitting at the shed ( and Olga is speaking with Countess  Hendrikova ) they are wearing it under their sweaters. It was only recently I realized AF was wearing it as well during that time . They were also wearing it with the rail road kids in 1916 ( again under sweaters)  That's a complex blouse!

I went searching!

Alix:



Are you referring to these ones of the girls?

My eye says Maria, but I've got nothing to prove it!

eta: I don't see a pearl earring — to me it looks more like a little gap in the evergreen foliage in the background. There are similar white spots between the two men standing beside Nicholas.

the girl is Maria, not Olga - she always been quite slim in her teenage years, Maria was always nicely plump.

I understand where those that are saying Olga are coming from, but when I look at the face I cannot see anyone but Maria.
