So I'm assuming that the photos of TMA in the same room are also from the same time?
No, not those. The photos I am talking about are the ones with Gilliard on the balcony of Livadia palace during French lessions, that were taken in 1912. The photos inside the palace are also said to have been taken cca. 1911.

I used to have this much bigger, but I can't find it anywhere.  I know there is a larger copy around somewhere, so maybe someone can post it later; in the meantime, here is the full photo:

Why thank you Dru! Giving me this allowed me to find a larger version

*Download for fuller size



This has to be 1909/1910, right?

Thank you!  I've been looking for that photo ever since I saw your earlier post.

1910 sounds about right, but I'm not what you could call an expert on dating these photos  :-\

I just think it must be around that time seeing as how mature Olga looks. Anastasia seems to be getting older as well. Maybe someone with better knowledge on years can shine some light on it :-)

I would guess 1909. In many of the 1910 photos Olga wears her hair in a low ponytail fastened by a large bow, apparently in preparation for putting it up in 1911.

Ah, yes of course. I remember you mentioning that in a message to me before. Thanks for the confirmation Sarah!

It looks like something amusing was said,  Nicholas has a smile on his face.
Beautiful faithful Nargony.

I just love photos where they're smiling together. Shows how he was a respected Papa, but was also friendly with his kiddies.
