who are these men

Группа генералов и адмиралов с великим князем Михаилом Николаевичем. 1870 г

Группа = Gruppa
генералов = generalov
и = i = and
адмиралов = admiralov
с = s = with
великим = velikim
князем = knyazem
Михаилом = Mikhailom
Николаевичем = Nikolayevichem

Can you guess now? :-)

Березы севера мне милы,
Их грустный, опущённый вид,
Как речь безмолвная могилы,
Горячку сердца холодит.

(Афанасий Фет: Ивы и березы, 1843 / 1856)

A group of generals and Admirals, among them is Grand Duke Mikhail Nikolaevitch.

To avoid any next misunderstanding and humour I do remind the posters to descript their pictures in English,or the pictures would be deleted,sorry.

'Bimbo' did not have the meaning it does today (an empty-headed young female).

When I was small (1960s) there was a comic character called Bimbo the Bear, who was certainly male.

General Sir Miles Dempsey, who commanded the British 2nd Army in North-West Europe in 1944-45, was apparently known as Bimbo, but I don't know why. There is a recent biography of him - perhaps that will explain. He is not a well-known figure, as he worked quietly in the background and left the public display to Montgomery.

Words can change their meanings over time. 

Look how the word "hacker" has changed.  Today it means someone illegally hacking into a computer or website.  In the old days, hacking meant chopping something up.
