Russian Nobility: Sofka

Figure 1.--Prince Obolensky took this photograph of his cousin Sofka and the Tsar in 1911. Notice the boy's wide-brimmed hat and long hair.

This is an image taken by Serge in 1911 with little Sofka, a cousin, and the Czar. Sofka wears below the knee knicker-like pants but has long hair. He looks to be about 4 years old although I can't tell for sure. He wears a wide-brimmed sailor hat and long curly hair.
