This is a useful thread...I saw these pics somewhere but I can't find them!

-Tatyana sitting on her knees next to Alexandra, who is in a chair...I think Tatyana is wearing a black dress but I'm not sure.
-The Imperial family standing near a big stone wall, almost like a cave or something, with steps...that one's kind of hard to explain.
-OTMA with bouquets of flowers, standing on a step.
-Olga and Tatiana on a ship (Standart?) standing and holding hands next to one of those big dark cylinder things on board.

I can't find these...thanks for your help!

There is a cathedral that goes down and a lake that goes up...
There is a little carriage abandoned in the copse...
There is a troupe of little actors in costume...

Livadia, autumn of 1913:



Approx. 1912:



And there are bunch ot OTMA photos on the steps of Catherine Palace, but I assume you mean the ones from 1912, can be seen in AV's albums, at Spala, I suppose. As well as for the one taken at Crimea before one big stone. Is that the one. I may post it.

Nena, thank you so much! And yes, the one I'm talking about with the stone, is in the Crimea. Post it if you want. Thanks!

I've got a few more I want to find...
Here's an example...I've found these of Tatiana and Maria but can't seem to find them for Olga or Anastasia. They're all similar to these, with the signatures at the bottom. Actually I'm not certain whether these are original photos or were edited to look like this, with the signatures, but here--

This is Tatiana's (of course).
Thanks for the help! I'm working on a drawing and need these.

any chance to have this bigger/better quality?
What a great photo...and I see Minnie is there as well...and Ducky too? Interesting. But I have never seen a later photo of the big pair and MF together. Was this at the opening of  MF's hospital?

I don't know whose hospital... on livadia.org, where I found this picture, it's only said that it's hospital opening, 1914...

I am looking for any picture showing Maria Feodorovna with her daughter-in-law Alix. Preferably some where their faces are visible, I mean, they are not in a crowd or anything like this.... can anyone help?

I'm sure there is one somewhere, but probably not many considering that Maria Feodrovna and Alix were not very close. likley it would be a formal, maybe with the children and or nicky.

once i saw in a book about queen victoria a picture of her with people who were related to her and nicholas and alix were in it. i got all excited  :) it was taken early 1890s i think.

Here's some of what you're looking for, but I'm not sure if the photo of OTMA is the one you want...
