This photo was taken on the balcony of the Alexander Palace.  The screen in the back is to give some privacy as the public sidewalk is just a few hundred feet away.  One can tell it is the AP also because of the design of the railings.

This is Standart.  The big wheel is used to lower the ships' boats.

the ground is like a swamp and it's wet.  So he is standing on the wood walk so that he does not get his white shoes wet and soiled.


Great one Aglaya!  :)

Another:



What on earth is he standing on in this photo??

It's not good explanation since this would mean he is not really playing tennis but just possing...because in the two ways he have to walk on the grass and will get his shoes dirty...i think he is standing there just possing for the photo  and to be in whole stature :)

the tennis court is on higher ground in the background.  not all of the area would be wet.  there are probably   lower soggy areas.

Aglaya, thank you very much for the great new photos, about the second one of Nicholas II in Italy in 1901, do you know exactly where in Italy?...I know that the Imperial Family visited Racconigi in 1909, but I'm never read about a visit here in Italy in 1901...

Honestly, I know nothing about a tsar's visit in Italy - that photo was just labelled as '1901', but maybe it's completely nonsense... Please correct me if I'm wrong. :)
