need help with photos of the GARF
« on: January 27, 2017, 05:04:15 AM »
Hi everyone!

I need help. I found this page of the GARF, I believe as I don't speak Russian, referring to an exhibition that took place in 2011. As far as I can see it was about the relationship between Russia and Italy.
An interesting photo taken in Racconigi Castle (Italy) by Han is also shown.

Two questions:
first
What does it mean?
Ал. 249, сн. 77
is it the number of Album? and of the photo?

second
Where can I find the e-mail address of the GARF,  in order to ask them if they have other photos taken by Han during that State visit? In Italy I could only find a few photos.

Thanks

Yes, it stands for "Al'bom" and "Snimok" = Album and photo

But this is not GARF, but the State Archives of Film and Photography

Contact information is on the same web-site:

Hi everyone!

I've just received an answer from State Archives of Film and Photography, which makes me very happy, except it's completely in Russian and I cannot understand it, besides it's a pdf file so I cannot copy and paste it into google translate because it is the scansion of the reply letter which has been written.
So I was wondering if there might be any kind russian speaking member of the forum who could give me his/her e-mail address, where he/she could receive the pdf, read it and tell me what it says.
Thanks a lot

Don't think you can attach files to personal messages here. Have to send an e-mail.
Березы севера мне милы,
Их грустный, опущённый вид,
Как речь безмолвная могилы,
Горячку сердца холодит.

No, files can not be attached to a PM. They have to be sent email.

Gleb,

Have you seen the book 'РУССКАЯ ИТАЛИЯ' by С. Ю. Нечаев on Russia and Italy?

Hi Joanna,
Actually I had never seen it before, but I checked the table of the contents on internet and it seems very interesting, thank you for suggesting it!

Hi everyone!

Thanks to Svetabel I have been able to understand what the letter says.
Now I'd ask you one more favour:
Could you help me translate in russian my reply to the director of the archive?

This is my answer:

Dear Director of the Archive,

Thank you very much for your letter of 17th February and for sending me the complete list of the photos of album 249.
I has been very useful for my researches.

Now I would like to ask you one more thing: how can I obtain a photographic copy (I mean jpeg or something like that) of some of the photos?
Can these copies be released freely for study purposes?
Or can they be bought, and if yes, what is the price for each photo?
Thank you very much indeed for your help.

I look forward to hearing from you.
 
Yours sincerely....
