You are more than welcome. Nice to see a good quality file as well. I believe the quote calls them the Tsar's   daughters?
The significance of their  visits to the wounded goes on to this day when photos like this are displayed on the street

Thank you very, very much for those photos Annie dear and gillian! Those are very lovely and new <3

Has this really been not posted anywhere in here before?
It’s actually from a Facebook page posted by Lisa in Rare Pictures’ Thread. I think it is a scan from Tatiana Z’s kind friend. I looked for this picture in the forum but didn’t find it so…



We saw this once in a very small size and now, it’s such in a great size : D
I wonder who took this photo for them. I wish she/he (if it’s Alexei) also had a try of this “funny faces” theme ^^

Amazing colored fotos  by the most wonderful Yelena Aleksandrovna. Endless thank you very much!

Thank you Grand Princess Shandroise ! That's one of my favorites. That's the biggest I've ever seen it too ! Delightful!
 I think this photo  goes with the onr of them looking at a photo album together in a very lady like pose! lol

It has been posted many times throughout the years around here, since it was part of Maria's page on the now defunct livadia.org. It wasn't not in such high quality as this one. Thanks.

I think it's Olga and Anastasia on that picture. Anastasia is quite recognizable, but not the other. It doesn't look like Tatiana at all, and I think it's not Maria. So, the only possible choice is Olga, even though it's hard to recognize her. I don't know who took the photo, but we can imagine it was one the sisters, probably Maria (I'm just guessing...). To be sure of who is on the photo, we have to know the date, because one of the girls wears her hair up, and they usually have to wait until 16 for that, so if the photo was taken before 1915, it may not be Maria (but I've heard that Maria wore her hair up before 16, I don't know if it's true, if it is, it complicates the things).

No... It is definitely Maria. I have no idea why you would presume it to be Olga. The other photographs from this day, also in the Mauve room, show it is plainly Maria and Anastasia. It is 1915 and Maria was allowed to put her hair up slightly early, for whatever reason. There has never been any debate on who was in this photograph.

I just said it was Olga because of the difference of age (but I wasn't sure about it...). But on this photo, for me, it was really hard to say if 'it's definitely Olga' or  'definitely Maria'. That's why I didn't say 'it's Olga", I said "I think it's Olga".
I didn't want to create a debate at all. I was just sharing what I thought. That's all.
I don't know the others pictures from this day, sorry: I only saw one photo from this day (and not the easiest to identify), so please, excuse my mistake.

I didn't mean to imply you wished to debate, I was just stating that there had never been any doubt that it was Maria so I was confused as to why you were suggesting it was Olga. Here is another from the same time. I had a larger, clearer version but I can't find it in my unorganized computer at the moment.

Thank you very much for this photo. Okay, it's clear that it was Maria. I was completely wrong.

No worries. I wish there were more pictures of Anastasia with her hair up as well. It's interesting how they all had their own, slightly different ways of putting their hair up.

To my knowledge, I've only seen one photo of Anastasia with her hair up, and I do think it quite suited her.
