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




Anybody know for sure?

I don't think that this picture is taken in captivity, because the teacher next to him is Petrov. And Petrov was not with them during their captivity/exile, so far as I know.

You're quite correct that Petrov didn't accompany the IF into exile, but I believe he was with them under house arrest in the Alexander Palace.

I never read that Petrov was there during their arrest. I've read the books of Anna V, Benckendorff, Mossolove, Dehn, Buxhoeveden, Gibbes and Gilliard, and nobody mentioned him.

I do not believe Petrov remained at the palace after the Imperial Family was arrested.

Perhaps a faulty assumption on my part -- I'll double check myself.  ;)

Sarushka, Petrov was ill those times (something serious), so he was not in the palace. Gilliard and the family regularly asked to the priest Afanassy Beliaev about Petrov's health and father Alexander's health. You can read that in the same precious book Sisters of mercy, here is the entire dairy of father Afanassy, a very interesting thing. I knew only large extracts. If I do not make mistake. Then remember that there is letters of the girls (I remember one of Olga) already from the Alexander Palace.

Alexei's head looks shaved here, wasn't this taken after the OTMAA had the measles?

Forgive my irritation, but that's exactly what we've been talking about since I posted the photo! The answer is no. Please refer to replies 143-145, and 150-155.

I don't think I've seen this photo before:



There is another, more common shot of Nicholas and Gilliard, but I think they're looking at the camera.

Mogilev 1916 with Igor Konstantinovich is correct.  :)

Thanks, Sarushka! Maybe you have cleaner version of this my Alexei's picture?

It is not captivity, I know.....

No, I'm afraid I don't have that one. I'm glad you posted it, though -- it's new to me!  ;D

It's certainly possible, but it's also really hard to tell with any reasonable degree of accuracy in black & white. The spots could be river mud for all we know....
