Possibly Ritka meant the in your reply. This is a German letter, which is actually a combination of two 's'es, the first being the 'long s', the second being a 'small s'. The long 's' was used in English up until the late 1700s, and looks a bit like an f.

A few days ago I had an experience with German and cyrillic letters. I looked for some russian websites and to be able to see the right I changed the codation to cyrillic. After (of course without changing back) I went to my own website and was shocked because all the letters we only have in German were cyrillic letters.
When I noticed why (codation) I had to think about Ritka here. I think you have your Codation on cyrillic, if you change it to westeuropean, you will see the German letter! ;D

Judging by how short Aleksei's hair is, I think this might have been taken during the IF's captivity at the AP:

Actually I believe the photo was taken while Alexi was staying with his father at Stavka

That's entirely possible, too. I wish we could see more of the room to ID it. But I've never seen Aleksei's hair so short -- except after it was shaved for measles.

Here's a photo from 1916, and one from 1917 for comparison:

There has been speculation that the Romanovs were never killed. I have seen many pictures and they are all in very good condition. If the Bolsheviks killed them , it would seem that they would have destroyed many, if not all of their pictures. Usually with the pictures being in such good condition and so many of them it would seem they would have still have been alive to have passed them down. What do you think??????? :-X

Of course there has been speculation that the Romanovs were never killed. There has also been speculation about many things in history that are not true, and this fits right in.The photos were taken from them after they were murdered, and put in the archives, and any way some of them must have been left behind at Tsarskoe Selo when they left there. The reason the photos survive is that they were taken from them after they were murdered, and then they were preserved. It doesn't mean they were not murdered.I think the Bolsheviks preserved things because they felt they could keep these things secret, and that they weren't ever going to become public. Had they felt that was the case, they might have destroyed the pictures. Then again, maybe the Bolsheviks kept them because they thought they were evidence against the Romanovs, although I could not be sure what way that would be.

There was little rhyme or reason to the Bolshevik regime.

They murdered their royal family, but they kept the silliest, most insignificant things belonging to them, such as laundry bills and paintings the children made. Why is this? Who knows- it could be for any number of reasons.  Thank goodness they did, though, because otherwise we wouldn't have the plethora of information we do have about the Romanovs.  I'd like to think that the Bolsheviks kept all the photos and personal ephemera of the IF for historical purposes, but it's more likely they kept it for 'evidence' or some other such reason.  The Bolsheviks keeping the photos of the Imperial Family does not mean that they were not murdered.  That is a rather illogical statement to make.  In fact, I'd imagine they'd be MORE likely to destroy the photos if they HADN'T murdered the family, as then they'd have a ton of images of the family for people to recognise them by.

Yes, not destroying the photos had the opposite effect from what they intended. I think had they known that they would have destroyed them, forth with. We are more familiar with the Romanovs these days rather than less, because the Bolsheviks did not destroy these things. I don't think they could have forseen that, and if they could the captivity photos and everything else would have been gone, or maybe not, because perhaps the evidence aspect was more important, even after their murders removed all possibility of a trial.
