From page 12 of snapshot album number 16 of the Russian Imperial Royal Family, compiled by Herbert Galloway Stewart (1866-1960).

The Vorontsov Palace, situated at the foot of the Crimean Mountains, is one of the oldest and largest palaces in The Crimea. Built between 1828 and 1848, it was the personal summer home of the Russian Prince Mikhail Semyonovich. It was designed by the British architect Edward Blore, who also completed the design for Buckingham Palace, and his assistant William Hunt.
