На этом месте войны была волейбольная площадка и рядом яма для прыжков в длину. Но вот откуда делали фото Белая башня, но тогда надо было применить линзы, но таких фото я не видел. Скорее всего фото сделали с крыши теремка.

On this place of war there was a volleyball platform and a number a hole for broad jumps. But here whence did a photo the White tower but then it was necessary to apply lenses, but such photos I did not see. Most likely the photo have made from a roof of a tower.

Geglov, I believe that the tennis court was at Livadia.

Грейс, ты совершенно права!!!!! Это теннисный корт в Ливадии. Лето 1914 года.
Во время Великой войны Государь Император в теннис НЕ ИГРАЛ!!!! Он был в Ставке, а в Ставке корта не было.

Грейс, you are absolutely right!!!!! It is a tennis court in Ливадии. Summer of 1914.
During Great war Sovereign Emperor in tennis DID NOT PLAY!!!! It was in the Rate, and in the Rate of court was not.

Во-первых, во время войны никаких увеселительных поездок не было. Нет никаких данных (см.переписку Императора и Его дневник), что он был в Петергофе и играл там в теннис. Есть только упоминание об одной поездки Императрицы в Петергоф только для посещения Лазарета.

Во-вторых, фотографии данного корта в Ливадии есть в альбомах Анны Александровны Танеевой (альбом №3 стр. №4).

First, during war no pleasure trips existing. There are no data (см.переписку Emperor and His diary), that he was in Peterhof and played tennis. There is only a mention of one trip of Empress to Peterhof only for visiting the Infirmary.
Secondly, photos of the given court in Ливадии are in Anna Aleksandrovny Taneevoj's albums (an album №3 p. №4).

Is that Grand Duke Ernest in the white shirt? He had visited Livadia c1912 or c1913 (?). Also Nikolas has stayed in Livadia in spring so that the trees would be leafless.

Well, I realize that this thread hasn't been active for two months, but I must say, I find it intriguing. I'm amazed at how all of you can spot little details in photos like the one of the car's back wheels with an edge of what looks like the court behind it. I wish I could go and try to find the locations of places like the tennis court for myself too.

Кажется на фоне тенисного корта, но где?

It seems against the backdrop of tennis courts, but where?

Along with the tennis court in the area of Feodorovsky Gorodok, there was located another tennis court in the park near the Alexander Palace. It was a temporary court,  covered in boards. Nicholas’ diary of June 13, 1915 “…played tennis with daughters which is again constructed of planks…” After the abdication, on May 12, 1917 “…came to see the work on a wooden folding ground for our tennis in the same place…”, on May 31, 1917 “…Day was successful work around the track, passing tennis …”, and on June 20, 1917 “…cut down four dead trees for tennis…”

As to the location of this temporary second planked tennis court, it may be the area between the bridge of the Children’s Island and the White Tower. Access for Nicholas in the garden areas after the revolution was the part located of the right wing. Later he was allowed to go further towards the Arsenal to cut wood. I have never read that the guards allowed him to walk around the Sobor nor Gorodok. It is possible that it would have been nearer the Children’s Island where he worked on the ice of the ponds and thought to have a temporary private tennis court built in 1915 as the one in the Gorodok was used by the hospital patients.

Joanna, you always provide such good information. I never knew about this temporary court. So they formed it by cutting down trees and using the planks for the court?

I stumbled on to this thread and like EmmyLee, find it fascinating and I greatly appreciate old posts which still have their photos ! Thank you!
Seeing the before and after , or as they might say,    "today'( them )  and the future"( us)  together makes it more real somehow...that they were at this  spot  and also seeing  how day light looks at that spot etc. Is remarkable . It jolts the b/w photos into our time. imo  Thanks to all doing this research!

I totally agree with you Blessotma............Joanna, BobG, Vladimir, Sarushka, geglov and many others each contributed so much to Bob Atchison's website which in turn made us more appreciative of the Alexander Palace, Feodorovsky Sobor, Tsarskoe Selo and Russian history.

I am still waiting and hoping that a book about the AP and the late Kuchumov will be published soon.
