Wow! Tatiana Z, this is a great group of photos and I want to thank you especially for the one of Alexandra and Tatiana. I've seen a low-quality closeup of it and I've been hoping that one day I'd get to see the full photo.

The quality of that one is spectacular.

I think it calls out for some colorization!

Also, judging by Tatiana's hair, that photo of her and Alix has to be around 1914, right?

Right. In the spring of 1914.Tatiana, thank you very much for  the photos, those are amazing. Yes, now we found out why Maria jumped across the fountain. ^_^

Some new photos are beautiful and offer a glimpse into previously unknown moments in the family's lives, while others make a familiar moment feel fresh again by showing it from a different angle. I wouldn't have guessed the Tatiana and Maria photo's connection to the other fountain photo from the low-quality closeup I'd previously seen of it: the girls' caps showed that the photos may have been taken on the same day, but now this full version reveals that the two photos tell an amusing story.

I can't quite tell which one is Anastasia, and which is Olga. Is Anastasia the one with one foot up on the rim of the fountain?

Yes, absolutely. That's Anastasia on the far left.
