Photo 14 is at Livadia.

I don't know who the men are in photo 10, but they are definitely officers of some sort. Epaulettes and some type of distinctive markings on the sleeve are visible on the suit of the man beside Olga. Perhaps they are naval officers? The dark uniforms reminds me of the Navy, but I have no knowledge of Russian military uniforms....

10.        the Photo is removed(taken off) at Anya's in the house. Together with Imperial family Nikolay Pavlovich Sablin sits at a table. That best friend who will betray them in the first day of revolution.

1.        Under doubt, that is Olga Nikolaevny's photo. It is very similar to young and young Irina Aleksandrovnu, daughter Xenia Aleksandrovny, of the native sister of Emperor. This girl has married prince Feliksa Jusupova. They are similar against each other, because cousines.

11. Slept 1912. A scene from performance of Moliere's the petty Bourgeois in nobility.

4.        the Photo after revolution. In an armchair - Maria Nikolaevna recovering after illness.
5.        the Photo of 1913. Tatyana Nikolaevna is sick a typhus.

Thank you, liliana!  

As you can see above, some of the words didn't appear correctly. Were you trying to use Cyrillic characters? If you spell the Russsian words in Latin letters, we'll be able to read them.

Thanks again for your help,
Sarushka

Photo 11, at Livadia in august 1912 (indeed playing Le bourgeois gentilhomme in french, there is a letter of AF about this scene). But in which room?
No one answer about picture 6?

I wonder if it's the sickrrom at the AP? The curtains look very similar to photo #5, and there's no other furniture in sight. Also, I don't know of another room in the AP in which there is no wallpaper or any photos/paintings on the walls. Here is photo #6 next to two others known to be the sickroom

Slightly off-topic:  
Does anyone know *where* in the palace the sickroom was located?

From the stories of the children's bout with measles during the abdication, I know it must have been upstairs, in the private family wing, but it's not labeled on any of the palace plans I've seen.

On this plan, the only possible rooms are 5, 29, 34 (and perhaps 27 & 28 ).

The two men in photo 10 at Vyroubova's are both officers of the Standart. Sabline on the left and I believe Rodionov on the right. These two men were two of the closest friends to the IF of all of the Standart crew.


#6 obviously can't be the sick room. Look at the curtains, they don't match ones in the sick room photos.

Oof! That'll teach me to look at thumbnails instead of full images... ::)

Does it look to you as if the curtains in photo #6 are framing a door, rather than a window?

Bob says it is definately not the sick room. The fabric not matching is a dead giveaway. He says the photo #6 is room 5 on the plan (note that it is the only room on the upstairs side with a door in the middle of a wall, instead of on one end of the wall which #6 clearly shows.)

Do you talk about the plan of Sarushka ? There are windows you can see the light in the picture with Alexandra and Alexis and also with the one with Olga.
I don't see windows in the plan for the room 5  :-/

10. Behind a table is exact Саблин. And the second officer not Родионов. Photo Родионова is in Anna Aleksandrovny Vyrubovoj's albums much.
11. Coordinates of a photo are taken from book Жильяра. There it(he) writes, they played what play.
