Grand Duchesses Olga and Tatiana at Peterhof: 1909.
A welcome to the Tsar and Tsarina from the Incorporated Chamber of Commerce Liverpool.
“May it please your Majesty we representatives of…desire to join most heartily in welcoming Your Majesty and the Empress on your arrival in this country to which both are so closely allied by ties of blood. It has lately been the privilege of this Chamber to receive and entertain at Liverpool Members of the Russian Duma and representatives of the Russian Nation, and it is hoped that the visit of both Rulers and subjects may tend to promote feelings of friendship and confidence between powers governing worldwide territories…We have the honour to be Your Majesty’s most Faithful Servants.”

Anastasia | does anyone know the year?
1909 or 1910, maybe?

Olga and her sisters in Cowes, with their cousin Louis “Dickie” Mountbatten. 1909.
Another new picture! Yay!
