Section 31 and certian high-level Starfleet and Federation officials probably knew what Romulans looked like during the original war. (The "Star Trek: Federation" book speculates that this was intentionally kept secret so as to not disrupt the burgeoning alliance between Earth and Vulcan.)
The 1988 novel, "Final Frontier" by Diane Carey, establishes that people like George Kirk Sr, Captain Robert April and Dr Sarah Poole (later Mrs April) know what Romulans look like, and they agree to keep the information out of official records.

Re: Nu!Trek and Romulan War

In the mid-23rd century, the fact that Romulans are Vulcans would probably no longer have fatal consequences to the human-Vulcan alliance. However, the fact that this fact had been kept secret could now collapse governments... I really wonder how the "leak" was handled in the two timelines.

Vulcan Ambassador " We are shocked, shocked to discover that the Romulans are our long lost cousins. Shocked.

No questions."

I'd bet the Andorians would have a field day with the reveal.
