New to me -- thanks a lot!

Can you post a link to your source? I've been to TsGAKFFD, but I never seem to find the same great photos you do.  8)

Are you sure that the last one is from 1916? Anastasia looks very tiny and childish to have just 15!

These are very interesting... In the last pic,I noticed that the four girls has assorted dresses with this strange dark print going along the center of them. I've already see this dress, but wore by Olga , Maria and Tatiana...I think it's the first time I see Anastasia wearing it...

It was probably taken in 1915. I would believe she was 14.

I think that date is correct. All the other photos I've seen of the girls in those dresses were taken in 1915/16.

Looks like I goofed again!  ::)

According to Nikolai II, by Iroshnikov, the photo of OTMA and Alexandra was taken on 1 July 1914.

Thank you for the date, Sarushka. Certainly, Anastasia does look much closer to 13 than to 15 years old for me!  ;)

Don't worry. One can't be certain of the dates of all pictures of the Imperial Family, since there are tons and tons of them! Every time I believe I saw the last one, a new set of NAOTMAA pics come out !  :D

Well Anastasia was short anyways and often looked younger than her actual age.

Yeah she did but when she was 17 she was 5 feet and 2 inches and her sisters were much taller in the picture they look like their 16-19 years old and Anastasia looks 10 or 11. She was short and always look younger that she realy was thats true Holly. People say I look like I am 17 tall as that but not the age at 1 year younger.

This was taken in Germany in 1910. I've seen a big group shot with a lot of family members from what I believe is the same visit, but probably not the same day because OTMAs' dresses are different. Probably Sarushka or someone has more photos.
