Am I the only one that thinks she looks in her late twenties? IMO, she had a rather grown-up face, like in the picture from 1906 with Olga holding Alexei and Maria and Tatiana holding hands, I think M and T's faces look a lot older than their bodies. I think it just makes them look more beautiful.

I agree. At this pic from 1916 she looks to me like 29 but not like 19.
And when he shall die, // Take him and cut him out in little starres, // And he will make the Face of heaven so fine, // That all the world will be in Love with night, // And pay no worship to the Garish Sun.

I like that too:

Tatiana is holding baby Alexei, and Ithink Nastya is standing back there...

You're right Lady Nikolaevna. It was taken at Peterhof and in the year 1905 according to the book "The Romanovs: Love, Power, and Tragedy". :)

Thank you very much. I though it could be either Nastya or Maria. Thank you for the source, Condecontessa :)

It is Anastasia in the background.

Is that her becoming-16-years-old-picture like the one we have of Olga?

I believe it's Olga's 16th birthday. Didn't Tatiana had short hair by the time of her 16th birthday?

1913, her 16th year,  is tricky for questions about Tatiana's hair because it was cut due to  her bout with typhoid ...so just when it would have gone up, it was cut ...this sort of looks like the wig she wore for the 1913 formals and it's seems she's with her regiment's officers at Lavardia.

Nice photo! New to meThanks!

This is a screenshot from a documentary I own -- her hair is definitely still down. Tatiana's hair was cut a few months prior to her 16th birthday. If I recall correctly it was March of 1913. The only photos I've seen of Tatiana with her hair up were taken in 1915 or later. 

IMO, it's most likely this was taken on the occasion of Tatiana's namesday in January of 1911, when she received her regiment.

Tatiana was lucky, typhoid was more deadly back then.

As was Maria when she got measels and a pneumonia in 1917
