I have some info on some of these photos:
# 435 and 439 these look like they were taken on 12 (OS)/25(NS) May 1916 at Sevastopol on the Battleships Imperatitsa maria or imperatitsa Catherine. There are a number other photos taken of this visit on this site and in Voennie Letopis (war Notes) and elsewhere. note: AN in the brimed hat and hair hanging down. The next day Nicholas and Alexei inspected some other ships and the day after that the IF opened a hospital named after AF in another crimean city (there is a film clip of this) and left the crimea for the last time.

511 the two men standing next to Nicholas are officers wearing what are called "French" tunics that were popular with Russian officers in the WW I period. There is picture of GD Dimtri p wearing one somewhere.

519 the leather belt and suspender/braces gear worn by the officer next to Alexei was commenly worn by Russian officers during the WW I period. The Bolos did away with it along with epaulets. I guess they were reguarded as too much of a symbol of Tsarism ect. They also did away with the Knout.

I hope those are new - if I'm mistaken could you post clearer copies, please?


I think there is Alix near to Duchess Gedroits. Who is the nurse - probably Olga?

The first one of  TN seems a crop from of a photo of the big pair and Alix.



The 2nd was part of a exhibit in Russia last year about the nursing
 of the Imperial Family. It's TN  with the Princess who was in charge of the place...and one of the regular nurses


It strikes me as a photo taken at the same time as this one with TN

Awesome photos Bless!

Although the second photo is obviously staged I'm struck by how much of a natural Tatiana looks in her nursing duties. Think this wounded solider/officer had any idea he was being assisted by an angel? :-)

I would agree with that and about all the nursing PR photos. She makes them real.

Great picture of all of them minus Alexei.  I've seen this before but don't remember being able to zoom in so close.   Is Maria sick in bed here?  Anyone know the  story behind this one?
