Both of them appear in quite larger and fuller versions, at Beinecke Library Albums of Anna Vyrubova.

Thanks, Nena.  I found it in the second album, which is for some reason labeled #3.  I'd overlooked it the first several times due to the background but have now decided it is my favorite.

Grand Duchess Ally very kindly supplied a colorized version.  I have both saved to my hard drive.  The black-and-white scan from Beinecke is 768 x 598, 49 KB, and the color is 615 x 480, 39 KB.  The color is MUCH better-looking and easier to see details.  My issue now (I don't say problem) is enlarging the part of the image to the size I need without losing resolution!  When I make it, that is, the size on the screen that I would want the print to be, it starts to pixillate.  I'd like to find an editing program to smooth parts of the image, even just fill in dots of color here and there.  Unfortunately I have not so far happened across one I can understand and use but will continue to look.

I would need help with his photo, about the date/place and people who are in it. I only recognize Petrov, Gilliard and Derevenko. Man on the far right reminds me on on Priest I have seen somewhere else, I suppose at Livaida photos.

I think the priest is Father Yanishev and I believe the pic was taken in Spala. In the Beinecke Albums, there were similar looking huts just like the one behind the group.

Father Yanishev was presented on Alexei's Christening. Thank you a lot, I though if that one was taken during the war, but now am certain that it wasn't.

Good eye, well done! You may be correct, it might be Joy. Only I was never certain about what of the GD's she might be?

It's labeled in House of Special Purpose as Olga, but I've never been 100% sure it's not Tatiana.

Thanks, girls !! xD
I think that the GD there can be Olga, Tatiana or Anastasia. I'm 99,8% sure that this GD is Olga!
