 Holy Moly!  Nice pic!   That must have been taken not too long after Whites abandoned the city. Possibly   late  1919 . or 1920. Both palisades are down and the  distinctive pointed cap of the soldier in the center suggests early Red Army style. Notice marchers are right next to the IH, not even on Vosnesensky Prospect itself.  Hmmm.

I have always thought that Ipatiev House is one of the oddest and most strangely placed houses I have even seen.

I wonder just how the rooms were used by Ipatiev and his family.

It looks like there was only one floor that the Ipatiev family could use for everything.  Anything else was attic and basement.

WOW. Completely new to me. I've never seen a photo of Vosnesensky Lane from this vantage point (facing west). Where did you find it?

Isn't that snow??  That means that the Imperial Family never saw the house like it is in the picture!

Yes that's snow in the picture.
I found it, as long with the two pictures above and the pictures below at Jackson’ Auction:

Oh my goodness, the one of the parlor is wonderful!! Never seen it before, and it's very helpful for reference for one of my Romanov home movie sets!  ;)

Really nice -- much better quality than the scans I had.

What room is the first photo?

About the first picture, they just said officers in Ipatiev house.

Judging solely by the placement of windows and doors, it seems like it would have to be the rear room adjoining the kitchen and dining room.

However, I'm beginning to wonder if this really is the Ipatiev house. The room seems disproportionately large, with a very high ceiling. The chandelier is much larger and more elaborate than the other light fixtures in the house. The trim around the ceiling is also different -- all the other rooms I've seen have deep wood mouldings, but this room appears to have plasterwork instead. Also, all the other doorways I have photos of are arched, while this room's doorway is square.

It can't be that room, either -- there would have to be a stairway leading to the basement right inside the door. See the room labeled "chambre":
