Last Pictures of Anastasia
« on: November 24, 2004, 04:57:49 AM »
 . . . does anyone know which it is? I remember on a site about the animated film, Anastasia, there was a photo (but it was tiny), allegedly taken 3 days before the murders.

Cheers.

I'm afraid to say that site was lying or wrong, because no pics exist of the family after they left Tobolsk. There were several rolls of film taken at the Ipatiev house but sadly the Bolsheviks burned them.

I read a book once when I was in Jr. High that had a lot of pics they claimed were taken just before the murders, but looking back later I can tell they were really pics from before the war, OTMA in pretty white dresses and shoes on Alexandra's balcony at the palace. It's sad how some people will give misleading information because there are people out there trying to learn.

The last pic ever taken of her that I have seen posted here was one of her sitting in a chair looking at a book. She had really grown up and looked a lot like her Aunt Olga. In fact when I first saw the pic I thought it was Olga. I know someone here has it, I forgot which thread it was in.

I don't have the pictures on me, nor am I able to scan them anyway,  but surely the last photos are of them on the Rus' (the boat) taking them from Tobolsk to the train to Ekaterinburg. There's one of Olga and Alexei, and one of Tatiana and Anastasia. I am pretty sure they are in Kurth's book Tsar.

The last one looks like Tatiana Nikolaevna.

Great pics Lisa. I would really like to see a photo of the Romanovs in Ipatiev house. But it seems like there aren't any and those which were taken were burned.

Also how did Anna Demidova, the maid, bother Alix during their short stay at Ekaterinburg?

I've got some photos from Tobolsk that have not been posted yet.  When I get home (I'm visiting my mom for Thanksgiving) I'll post them.  And for that one pic Lisa posted, yes, it's Tatiana. :)

Sorry about my last post:  no message.

Regarding the 1917 picture of AN, MN, and TN taken before their hair was cut, I have found a picture that I believe was taken at the same time.  The photograph of Marie and her father was taken in the older girls' bedroom at TS (as can be noted by the decorations on the ceiling and what appears to be a raven's wing hanging from the light fixture. )  It looks as if Marie is still recovering from measles since she is sitting in a lounge chair and is in a dressing gown.  This would place the time of the photograph sometime in March or April 1917.   I will try to figure out how to post this picture, but, in the meantime, it can be found in The Fall of the Romonovs.  The caption incorrectly  identifies her as Alexandra although the picture definitely is of Marie.  (Yes, I know this is an Anastasia site, but I was trying to shed some light on the picture of AN and her sisters.)

I will have to look into how to send the picture.  Help.

Mary

Yes, she did but it was at Livadia. It was when they found the Tsar's study unlocked (it was normally always locked) but it seemed not to be on the day. So OTMA decied to have a look in the study. Once they got in there they heard their mother calling for them. Marie, did not want to get caught so she asked he sister's to lower her out of the window, but they let go ! And Marie fell ! The drop was not big. I think the story is in more detail at the 'Funny Stories' thread in the Imperial Family section

Here are a few photos of AN in 1917.  I just pretty much cut out everything else but her since the photos were all quite large!











And as for the photo of the girls in the Governor's Mansion window, looks to me like Olga's the one who fell out-- er, isn't there. ;)

Such wonderful photos of Anastasia.  The photos seem to be taken in Tobolsk only.  I haven't seen any of the four girls and Alexei together. Not even Anastasia and her three sisters together.   Marie seems to be the one missing from most of the photos.
