Between 5 and 14 June 1908, King Edward VII and his nephew-in-law, Tsar Nicholas II of Russia, with members of their families, met on board their yachts, the Victoria and Albert and the Standart, off Reval in the Baltic. The meeting had political significance, as Britain and Russia had signed a friendly agreement in 1907, but it was also a family party. Queen Alexandra kept an album commemorating the occasion: she had brought her No.4 Kodak camera with her and took a number of photographs, some showing the children of the Tsar.
