You're welcome. It took me most of an evening to get a firm understanding of the layout of the Ipatiev house and yard, so it's nice to be able to put the info to use/show off a little.

These were taken in 1918/9, IMO.

Fuller one, 1918:

I'd guess they were also taken in 1918 as the pallisade (fence) is still up.

Definitely, to be precise, seen labeled as 'May 1918', at time of NAM arrival at Ekaterinburg.

EDIT: I have seen Ipatiev 1918 House photo, without fence, or was it taken just near fence, since I don't see it (only see few guards near house, no fence). I know it was double palisade around house.

Because the Vosnesensky Proskept entrance isn't visible, the photo nena posted was probably taken during the summer of 1918, after the arrival of OTAA and the addition of the second palisade.

This is what the house looked like at the time of NAM's arrival in May, with the covered porch still visible at the north (right) end:


From the opposite angle:



The second palisade enclosed the entire property, like so:

Heh, it seems I am still 'good/useful' for finding R-ovs  photos , Am I?  ;-). I don't love to glorify me, but it is hours and hours hanging on web.

It's nice to be able to see the windows in colour and in detail. See, I always thought they were just plain old sash widows but in reality they look different.It seems they are those windows where you push the pane open.

Also sorry to drag this up again but any ideas what this is in the bottom right corner - "http://i49.photobucket.com/albums/f295/tom_romanov/inside2_005.jpg"- looks like a table?

Yes, that's right. One of the windows facing Vosnesensky Lane in N&A's bedroom also had a tiny "fortochka" pane near the top of the window that could be opened for ventilation in the winter. (It's also called a "Russian window.") This small single pane was allowed to be open even while the other windows were painted and sealed shut. However, because of its position and the fence outside, only a very strong direct breeze could enter the room -- according to Nicholas's diary this happened once during a storm on the night before Tatiana's birthday. I have a photo I can mark to highlight the location of the fortochka.

It's a table and the back part of a chair. Here's a larger version of that photo:

Thanks. It took me whole days to organize my Romanov scans, but I've never been sorry for a minute since.

More about fortochki here.

Well, I know fences were painted in white, but wonder when 'lay off' color? And, how that not every room wasn't photographed?

Here's the fortochka pane, circled in green:


I think this one was taken much later after 1918.
