I was told a long time ago that Sophie Buxhoeveden's photo albums might end up there. Last time I heard that they were still under the bed of a descendant of a noble Russian family in Britain.
It would be verey interesting to know what's at Broadlands and what's at Southampton. Are their Victoria diaries? Where is her correspondence with Alix. Do we know?
Broadlands has indeed some things of the Baroness, including her personal postcard book, which has many views of Livadia, some handwritten on the back to her father, others are postcards of the Tsar/Tsaritsa/Tsarevich etc. I was told they had the photo collection of her too, but strangely, i was only shown what looked to be fine copies, they certainly were not the originals.
Many many thanks Helen for this information!! I wanted to know so much about whether they had any Victoria/Alix correspondence. Perhaps Victoria's to Alix are in the Russian Archive? But in Buxhoeveden's book, letters from Alix are quoted to Victoria. How could Buxhoeveden have access to them i wonder, and where are they now?
