Ally, I entered on the website and it says it was taken between 1917 and 1918 in Tobolsk =)
I was wondering about that....looks like the governors house

This website is mistaken. The molding along the roofline clearly doesn't match the governor's house in Tobolsk:


I think it's more likely the governor's house in Mogilev. Here's a photo from Mogilev which is often mislabeled as having been taken in Tobolsk:

IMO, the architectural features in Katenka's photo are a much closer match to this house.

But a rare and excellent photo nonetheless!

I also think that one was taken in Mogilev, the background behind doesn't match with the Tobolsk's one. And I must admit, her dress says that the photo was taken during the Imperial time. Well done on finding it!

I wonder if that pic was taken during the same time with Olga that is in the book End of the Romanovs?

Certainly similar, but not the same day:

Thank you Sarushka, I was looking for that one. Tatiana seems more mature in the one Katenka_Fyodorovna found ( thanks again!) Also what is interesting about the two Governor houses is while they can appear similar,( windows and rain pipes! )  the one at Mogilev is a "lighter" building for want of a better work. The governor's house at Tobolsk is more solid, almost like  a fortress. The house at Mogilev  seems more likely to have such a second story balcony. In Tobolsk the only balcony I have seen is the masonary one over the front door and not nearly as long

I don't know but I think they are officers.
The pic must have came from the Royal Russia book but it doesn't have a date. Would anyone know the date for the pic?

Has to be early cause they are in white...which I believe they wore before earning their Red Crosses ( but that could be wrong) ..and also that's a screen from the family's own sick room ! The man in bed has to be an officer as that's who came to their hospital. However the man between the BP could be a regular solder orderly...unless they were officers as well...just corporals and sargents...  It's interesting how both of Tatiana's hands  are touching the bed and she is looking at us, while  Olga doesn't look too engaged  in what is going on. TN had a talent for the order and exactness that  nursing requires. She missed it while in captivity . The limes are to prevent  scurvy I'm guessing...plus there is a heat lamp! Looking at the officer in the bed,it seems he has lost his right arm

Not sure.... I would think late 1914, but there are many on the forum who would know better!  Interestingly , they and the items are posed in such a way  to make it seem a photo taken expressly for the press.... That orderly looks terrified! lol!

Time for a Tatiana photo. Looks like Anastasia and the Heir are with her...and she seems annoyed and not  too pleased to be photographed just then!
