This? I'd say that I see Anastasia, Alexei, maybe Dr. Derevenko, and maybe Olga? But the background seems bit weird to me,those trees, and it was always labeled as 'Tobolsk'.

Oh, i have it but not in my "Tobolsk" folder... i've it in my "Zarskoje Selo captivity" folder!!

yes nena, that's the one ! Thank you !  I'd say left to right, Olga ,Alexis ( in the swing )  Anastasia and the Tsar . I see the back or arm of another on the far right, but that's all ( I wonder if Olga is looking at someone one on the greenhouse roof?)
  
They had those kind of chimney pots there. I believe this photo of the courtyard was taken by someone standing on the greenhouse roof. But is it reversed? Someone who knows the sky line Tobolsk better than I will be able  to tell. But I believe this is  the view they saw while sitting on the roof . We know they had a swing in Tobolsk, ...and certainly did not later...so it 's most likely Tobolsk indeed

Indeed, Tobolsk.....I'm pointing out the similarity in chimney pots between the  Tobolsk courtyard photo  and the swing photo. nena wondered if the swing photo was in Tobolsk. I now believe the photo of the courtyard isn't reversed and that is how the sky line of Tobolsk appeared in the distance  to the family as they sat on the greenhouse roof...with the 2 large  buildings and tower

I'm wondering if someone can help me out! I'm looking for a photograph of Nicholas II standing in front of a lake, his back is facing the lens and there's a funny looking gap between his legs because they're standing apart (it's just something I always noticed about the photograph). It's kind of mournful looking, they used it in the A&E Nicholas and Alexandra documentary.

I think this is the one you want. It looks like a lake, but it's  the Dnieper river . It seems there was a church on the other shore that  NII liked to look at from this spot . Very evocative photo

There's this tiny photo of Alexandra Feodorovna that I'd like to see larger. It seems a bit rare...

Hey everyone! I'm looking for the photo of OTMA together on a beach (the well known one of them huddled together in long dresses and hats around 1908ish, and Anastasia looks completely miserable). Either B&W or even coloured versions would be terrific! Anyone think they can help me out?

Also, would anyone happen to have a good quality photo of toddler OTMA sitting in front of a Christmas tree in the Playroom?
