When looking for something else,  I noticed the photograph of Anna Anderson in the book by Guy Richards  THE HUNT FOR THE CZAR.  


Underneath was the words: "PLATE 34:  Another claimant to the Romanov fortune, Anna Anderson, circa 1902."

"cira 1902" ??  I didn't know there were any photographs of Anna Anderson/FS  before 1920s.  Maybe, it was mislabeled and should read 1922??  Or, is this an actual photo of AA/FS in 1902?

The GD Anastasia would have been about one ...??? in 1902.....

A confused bear.....

That's weird. I had that book but I sold it on Ebay, and I certainly don't remember that picture being in there and saying 'Anna Anderson' underneath.
I don't think that is AA in that picture, and it certainly wasn't taken in 1902! If that is AA in 1902, then she was definitley not Anastasia, because she looks older than 1 year old in that picture  ;D...maybe they meant 1920?? It really doesn't look like Anna Anderson though  ???

AGRBear, is your copy of "Hunt for the Tsar" a paperback with a black cover and a painting of the family portrait from 1913 on the front? That's what my edition looked like, and I don't remember that pic being in there.

 Bear, I just looked at my copy of the book and there it was.
I don't think this  photo is of Anna Anderson, at least it looks nothing like her. In any case, where would they get one from 1902 of her? I think the author may just be a very confused guy...

The same book also has this photo (Plate 22), identifying it as "The alleged Grand Duchesses Olga, Tatiana, Anastasia and Maria, according to Colonel Goleniewski, photographed in Poland, circa 1921.... "  Huh?  ???

I have a hard cover book, first edition, 1970.

AGRBear

PS  Perhaps the printer typist wasn't the best???

PSS  Same cover as Helen's book shown in her post.

Abby,

This is what the cover of my book looks like, notice the family photo on the Tsar's forehead  ???... I admit, I never read this book, not even sure why I own it and where I got it from, but it looks so bizarre, I am almost tempted to read it now!  :o

Looked under the list showing the plates but this page, also, states the year 1902.

Went in the book to see if there was a list of ownership of the photo and it's not mentioned under credit.

Anyone seen this photo in any other place?

When I first copied it this morning,  I thought her face was against a curtain.  But it may be another woman/girl's dress, perhaps a sleeve....

She actually kind of looks like a young Nadezhda Krupskaya  ;) Are we sure that this book is not some sort of a joke?

dude, LOL. My book didn't have that picture that Helen posted, either! I got gipped! :P it was a paperback and had no pictures. I can't find a picture of what my copy looked like on the internet.
i also read 'rescuing the romanovs' by guy richards. the books  were very similar in content. very interestng but i didn't buy into his claims.

Hey, why not??  ;)  You did get gipped! At least you could have derived some entertainment from the photos... Do you think the girl in the picture (AA in 1902) looks like Krupskaya? I think it may be her  :o! Or maybe I am just losing my mind  :-/  ;D

I don't see the same comparison as Helen.

I don't see it either, except for the same eyes, the same lips, the same nose and the same ears. Other than that, she looks nothing like her!  :P
