Or train/car accident from early 1915?

well, Iīm not sure... If it was after the terrible accident, I donīt think she would look so relaxed... It may have been just some insignificant illness...

She became health later, she injured badly, and it is posible as you said, Ally. There are more from Beniecke in her bed.

I think it's most likely the train accident. She had a long convalescent period afterward, and IMO the most painful part of her recovery would likely have occurred in the hospital.

True, but she looks seriously different than in her earlier photos with the really big hair. In fact at first I didn't  think it was AV at all or possibly much later. But being long term bedridden does a job on anyone's appearance.

I think Anna Vyrubova's so lucky to have the Romanovs as her friends. She even resided there at AP and been treated as their own blood.
But, she also suffered when the IF was imprisoned..totally, physically and emotionally.
I'm glad there's one like her (and there were many like her who remained faithful to the family (",)

She lived near AP. But I think that woman perfectly knew to act in every situation. Yes, she was suffered while IF arrest. But she escaped later...but after terribly months at Petropavlovsk. She also burned correspondence on relation Rasputin- Anna - Alix, despite she said to 1917 Commission that she didn't do anything.

AP in the black circle, Vyrubova's house by the arrow:





(At the time of the revolution, Anna had measles and was staying in the AP.)

Thanks for those pics, Sarushka.
Did Anna act somehow like a mother to OTMAA? It's just because she's so close to them, so, I think she is.

Anya was only 11 years older than Olga N, and acted very childish and fawning around the imperial family, so I think she was more like a big sister or friend to OTMAA. Alexandra often referred to her as "childy" or "our big baby."

Wow, sweet Alix...What are those pains suffered by Anna then a little before the Russian Revolution?
I've read that OT prayed for Anna's legs.

Info on measles here. Anna caught measles from Aleksei and was confined to bed in the AP during the February revolution of 1917.

However, Anna Vyrubova's legs were crushed in a rail accident in early January of 1915. She wasn't expected to live, but did, and walked with crutches and a cane afterward. Perhaps that's when O&T were praying for her legs.
