Interestingly altered. It kind of just looks like someone loaded it into Photoshop and used some sort of filter to make it more stylized.

In "the last known photo of the Empress" it is difficult to tell whether that is Marie or Olga, as they looked so much alike in later years. I know it's Olga though. The melancholic expression tells all.

The man standing in front of Nicholas II is Vassily Yakovlev who took Nicholas II and the others from Tobolsk....

Before anyone had a photo of the "mysterious"  Vassily Yakovlev, an artist drew this scene showing him turning  Nicholas II and some of the others over to the officials at  Ekaterinburg on 30 April 1918.

Yakovlev's identity was not known for a long time and many old books have theories as to who he was.  Some thought he was there to rescue Nicholas II.  Some thought he was part of the skeme to place Nicholas II into th hands of the Soviet Ural in Ekaterinburg.  Some thought he was a German rescuer and the plot failed.

It wasn't that long ago that a photo appeared of Yakovlev and the Soviets explained who he was and that he had not died as previously thought in the hands of the CHEKA, or the Whites or of typoid (I think it was)....  The Soviets also explained he was a Bolshevik and not as mysterious as the old books claimed.

About this photograph on the balcony: we can try to date it. I read the diary of the Empress. She was for example on the balcony the 15, the 21 of august, the 3 of september. Later, the wether bacame colder. I have just an electronic short version of the diaries, so there can be other possibles dates. She did not wrote was she with daughter or not. Any proposition?

I've read in various places, that photographs of the IF have been mislabeled, dated incorrectly, etc.
This brings up the the issues of everyday travel, and living freely. Let me explain: I understood up to 1940's, streets, highways, and other by-ways were incorrectly stated on maps. This was to make it difficult so the population would not be able to get around. Did they not also as soviet citizens, in cities, have to register as to if they were going to leave any area to each governing area? I heard it was very difficult to leave any given area without state approval.

Thus my thoughts of pictures, time frames, names, etc., all being treated without any real regard.

Could someone post the pictures of them on the Rus?

And where was this one taken? I've seen it labeled as Nastya's last picture everywhere...

 It was taken in Tobolsk in the girls' room and yes, it is the supposed last photo of her.

Can't be the last photo of her, as it was taken in Tobolsk. The last photo of her is the one of her on the Rus, heading to Ekaterinburg.

I've never seen a picture of her on the Rus. Only Olga and Alexei.
