Whether her hair is up or down, she still looks gorgeous.

The description says Tsarskoe Selo but isn't this Peterhof or something? I've seen photos from a big sunny room in Peterhof with similar furniture.

I believe this is a curtained balcony, rather than a proper room. The furniture and floor covering in this photo doesn't match those at Peterhof.

I've always been under the impression that these photos were taken out on Alexandra's balcony.

At Tsarskoe Selo, I presume.

Yes, Tim, at the Alexander Palace.  I don't know why I left that out.  :-)

I think you're right. It appears they occasionally screened off the open railings (perhaps during cooler weather?) which leads to confusion about the location.

For example, I always thought this photo of Maria was taken at Peterhof, but I just noticed the edge of a metal post in the upper right corner that matches Alexandra's balcony at Tsarskoe Selo:

And the floor in that photo matches the floor in the other photos Bryndis posted. Further, there are photos of Alexandra, Olga, and Tatiana wearing their Red Cross uniforms on this same balcony, which also points to Tsarskoe rather than Peterhof.

So indoor photos ot OTM were taken at Tsarksoe Selo but outdoor ones such this

were taken indeed at Peterhof but in 1914, not in 1915. That would be the final analysis, don't you agree? Simply the Grand Duchesses were wearing the same dresses at both places.

Yeah, it would be around the start of the First World War.

Tatiana in Alexandra's dressing room at the Alexander Palace.
 I've never seen a photo of a person in that room. Thanks a lot!

I believe that it is one of the very first photos of GD taken in nurse uniform given the fact that it was taken in 1914.

"Царское Село, 1914 год
ГА РФ, ф. 640 оп. 3 д. 25 л. 61 фото 884" - this photo was made possible not even in Petrograd, but in Moscow. If someone can help in the attribution, I will be grateful
