Costume Ball 1903
Nicholas II’s diary Monday, March 3rd, 1903 - … We got dressed in our period costumes and gave ourselves as victims to Levitsky for half an hour. He took our pictures in the Concert Hall …
I have a photo of Nicholas in his costume standing next to the chair with Levitsky’s elaborate backdrop.It was never released for publication.
Levitsky’s faux pas - presentation plates and chairs of the Concert Hall are seen on the left side where the backdrop ends.
