Maria and Alexander III group photo

Posted to the Alexander Palace Time Machine Discussion Forum by katmaxoz on 6 January 2010. Katmaxoz provided this caption identifying those in this photo:  "Alexander III & Marie Feodorovna and brother with high standing members of the court. Seated left to right: Mistress of the wadrobe Princess Juliya Kurakina, Tsarevich Alexander Alexandrovich, Tsarevna Maria Feodorovna, Grand Duke Alexei Alexandrovich, lady in waiting Alexandra Kurakina.

Standing: 2nd from left artist & teacher Alexis Bogolyubov; 3rd from left, law teacher Konstanin Pobedonostzev, 6th from left, the Tsarevna's secretary Feodor Oom; 7th from left aide de camp Paul Kozlov."

The skirt of only the left-most sitter is fully visible - a crinoline. That and Alexander's moustache date this to the middle 1860s.
