Captivity photo's
« on: October 08, 2004, 11:09:31 AM »
I saw once a photograph that was taken in Siberie of the Imperial family, sitting against a hedge in the garden.  Why was this photograph taken?  Does anyone has this photograph have?

I know which photo you're talking about....there was also another one taken of the family in Sibera. It was of them sitting on what looked like the roof of a house but it couldn't have been.... Anastasia and I think Olga had their dogs sitting in their laps in the photo. There is a link to a whole bunch of pictures of the Romanovs on this board. I'll look and see if I can find them, then I'll post the link for you. :)

It was indeed a roof. There is another picture of Nicholas chopping wood, with the same roof in the background.

Here are a couple of photos from when they were in captivity in Tsarskoe Selo.



Anastasia and Tatiana (? I think)



Looks like Maria and Alexei.

I'm in the middle of re-scanning a bunch of stuff so when I get to it I will.  I saw it in Gilliard's book I believe... I've got it somewhere!!

The last photograph of any member of the Imperial family that has surfaced to my knowledge is one taken on board the steamer Rus taking the tsarevich and the three grandduchess plus their retinue to the rail station in Tiumen. It is a rather dark photo showing Olga sitting in the background with Alexei in an army great coat sitting in front and turning toward the camera.
I could be wrong but I think that is the last photo of the family.
There is also a "last photo" taken in Tobolsk after the Tsar, Alexandra and Marie had been taken away which shows Alexei in bed in his pajamas and he is mugging for the camera by holding up his hands and splaying his fingers.
Perhaps the soviets in Ekaterinburg took photos which are in some archive somewhere and undiscovered, or they could have been destroyed.
If I am wrong about the photos I will stand corrected.

There is also a photo of Tatiana and Anastasia on the Rus going to Ekaterinburg, from the same time as the one of Olga and Alexei.

There's also a photo of Alexandra and 2 daughters on a balcony, which lots of books say is Tobolsk 1918 and is the 'last photo'. I am pretty certain it's not 1918 - they are dressed far too lightly for any time that they were in Tobolsk in 1918, also the clothes look quite different from what we are accustomed to seeing them wear in the last year or so of their lives. Maybe it is Tobolsk, not long after they got there in late summer 1917. Anyone else (who knows the photo) have any ideas?

In"The End of the Romanovs" 1966, Victor Alexandrov. There are alot of  Tobolsk pictures. Some photos in the book appear wrong, alot are right.  In some the girls are wearing summer dresses.  Its worth seeing.
