Karland Zita, many thanks for the 4th picture you posted, this of OTMAA at board of the Mejen in 1913, for their Tricentenary trip. Could you indicate me your soure? I am looking for more picture of this journey on the Volga.
I know I've seen that photo in a book -- hopefully, it's in one of MY books! I will try to find it for you. If I don't post a reply within a week, please remind me with a PM.  ;)

It is on "The Romanovs, love,power and tragedy"  ;)

Here it is an other picture from the section posted by Nadya:

Bonjour à tous!  :D
 Je dois dire que je comprends bien en lisant, mais que je suis toujours très frustrée quand il s'agit d'intervenir en anglais... :( Je maîtrise de moins en moins cette langue à force de ne pas la pratiquer. Comme j'envie les bilingues ou les trilingues parfaits! (nos cousins les Canadiens par exemple! ;)) Ca me fascine!

Idem pour moi, c'est parfois très frustrant de ne pas pouvoir participer à une conversation, et comme toi, je n'ai plus vraiment l'occasion de parler anglais alors je suis toujours en train de chercher mes mots  :(.

Y a t'il beaucoup d'informations nouvelles dans le livre de Louis Beroud, est-ce qu'il y a de nouvelles photos ? J'ai le livre "Journal secret" et j'aurai bientôt  le livre "Souvenir de ma vie" d'Anna Virubova, a t'elle écrit d'autres livres ?

Rachel, Amelia et Olishka, votre français est très bon, félicitation  [smiley=thumbsup.gif]

If I am not wrong, it is from left to right :  Kirill Vladimorovich, Andrei Vladimorovich, Ernst Ludwig, Victoria Melita, Nicholas, Alexandra, Nicholas of greece, Marie of Romania ?, and Boris Vladimorovich.

In october 1899, Nicholas and Alexandra were in Wolfsgarten, in a property of Ernst, there are some others pictures in the book of Michel de grèce "Nicolas and Alexandra, L'album de famille"  ( with sadly, some errors in captions), and on a french documentary of Frédéric Miterrand, for those who are interested.

Never mind that last post -- it's not Vyrubova's house at all, I think it's the dacha at Peterhof!

Once again, here are the photos in question:


Now, look at the grapevines on the wall of Alix's reception room at Peterhof:


And look at this nearly identical piano in Aleksei's reception room Peterhof:


Finally, I've marked an identical piece of lattice-work in these two photos. The one of Maria was taken in Alix's reception room:


So, could this mystery-room be anything but a new view of Alix's reception room at the Peterhof dacha?

Well done Sarushka  ;)

An other view of your room

In this formal shot, it is the same motif but not the same floor

It is exactly the same furniture in those pictures :
