Re Post # 242: IMO, I believe that this photo (Post # 238) is from an apparent series of World War I era photos that feature the related screen/panelled/partitioned background and is mentioned in "Aleksei Photos III," Replies # 285 and 286." It certainly does not seem to be a "palatial" location, and is most likely at Stavka, which of course would be relatively spartan in comparasion. Notice that the Heir is in a "nightshirt-like" garb ( #238 of this thread) and playing on his camp-bed ( # 283 of "Aleksei Photos III), apparently in "light-hearted" moments. Conceivably, these photos were taken by his "room-mate," his father the Emperor. Regards, AP.
