Olga/Tatiana and Aleksei, I don't know which year?:


That's Tatiana. (Olga wore a light-colored blouse that day). It was taken at Peterhof in 1915. There are more photos from that series in Anastasia's Album.

The photo above and this one were taken in Evpatoria in May 1916. The series in Anastasia's Album were misidentified.

Joanna, isn't palace near Lower Dacha?

And I agree it was taken at Evtarpia. There is one of Aleksei taken at same day, labeled as Crimea, 1915 or 1916.

Were the photos taken at Peterhof? I used to know where Dacha was, but I've forgotten.

They're dressed like it's cold(which makes it insane that they were in the water!), and I've never seen them dressed like it was that cold in Crimea.

Of course, I'm bad at identifying where pictures were taken.

Here's the post that convinced me the photos in Anastasia's Album were mislabeled:


Hi!

Sorry to say that these photos were not taken at Peterhof but very far away, in the Crimea, on the shores of the Black Sea. When I first saw them, I was excited as I thought it was indeed Peterhof, but I found it odd the Palace would have such close neighbours as the photos would suggest. Then, in the book by Marvin Lyons, I noticed that the same photo of the Emperor sitting in front of a brick wall and metal fence was said to have been taken at Eupatoria in the Crimea, on May 16, 1916. I checked his diary and found that, while in the Crimea, the Imperial Family had paid a visit to “Anya” . His entry for the same day fits the photos. I then checked Anna Viroubova’s Memoirs and, sure enough, she writes that she spent two months in Eupatoria in a flower-hung villa overlooking the Black Sea, recuperating after her accident. She describes the day the Imperial Family came to visit and adds that after lunch they walked and sat on the beach. According to her, “Alexis enjoyed the day (…), playing on the beach and building a big sand fortress, which the schoolboys of the town next day surrounded by a high wall of stones to protect it from the ravages of the tide.” So the author and editor of “Anastasia’s Album” were obviously mistaken.

Yes, I saw newspaper about Tsar visiting Evtarpia in 1916, and I saw movie! So, finally, it was taken at Crimea in 1916.  ;)

I thought the IF didn't go to the Crimea during the War.

They visited Sevastopol in 1915 and Evpatoria in 1916. Entries in both Nicholas's and the GDss diaries give the precise dates if you're interested.

However, I don't believe the IF stayed in their white marble palace at Livadia during WWI.

What did they do down there?
