To me, it looks like late 1917-early 1918, Tobolsk.

I agree. Looks like Olga, to me.

Oh My! I can see Olga too! For the longest time I always thought it was Tatiana. So I looked over the picture and can see both girls. I'm so confused now *rattles brain*  [smiley=undecided.gif]

At first glance, I saw Olga. But now I can see how it can be Tatiana, too.

I also think that is Tobolks end 1917 or January-February 1918, I see Tatiana, her elegance is unmistakable.
But looking the photo, and here ask  your help again, see the up right corner, you see something like a roof, a small part of a roof and the Nicholas´s hand is  on the fence- the right hand- but see with attention, where is his right arm, you see the hand but where is the arm. thanks for the your ideas

It must be Tobolsk, with all the snow, it is clearly winter. Nicholas no longer has any military buttons, badges etc. on his coat.

...the arm is embracing the fence, on the other side of it

Does the woman in the picture have Olga's "humble snub?" I can't tell.

Tatiana I believe was as tall as Nicholas, not Olga. In the picture they are of almost equal height, meaning that it would have to be Tatiana. At first glance though, the face strikes me as Olga. Can someone provide the eldest grand duchesses' approximate heights?

There was a thread on it awhile ago. I think most people put Tatiana around 5'9, and Olga around 5'5.

I need help with a photo on the front of the book 'The Fall of the Romanovs', seen here:

http://images-eu.amazon.com/images/P/0300065574.01.LZZZZZZZ.jpg

This is a photograph I've never seen before.  The only I/D the book gives is that it was taken c.1915.  I was just wondering if anyone knows where this was taken, and exactly when? Nobody looks particularly happy in it, so I was thinking it was perhaps taken while they were under imprisonment rather than in 1915? Can anyone help?

Thanks in advance!
