Gosh, oh dear.... if it was Lenin's wife then we'd have to switch gears and drive onto "Conspiracy Lane".

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!
.


Franziska was born in 1896, so in 1902 she'd be six. That girl looks six to me.

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

Nadezhda was born in 1869, I don't suppose there is any way I can convince anyone that this is just a very well preserved 33-year-old, can I?

;D

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?  ???

[


When I saw that years ago, I was fooled, but the last time I saw it I laughed and couldn't believe I ever fell for it. Lanie's right, (of course) that pic is 1917! I also saw a pic in another book that had a picture of the young OTMA in their white dresses and hats on their mother's balcony that claimed it was taken at the Ipatiev house a few days before the execution!  :P

I think I am going to write a book about Nadezhda Krupskaya and her claims ;).

Ok, I will stop now!  :-X

   It seems that basically you can publish any picture and identify it as whatever you want.... In this bizarre book, the author mixes and matches the real with the imaginary.

LOL! Yes, let's compare ears of these 2 photos and see where it gets us! ;D
Wouldn't that be something...if there was a picture of a young F.S. in the book labled 'Anna Anderson' and no one ever thought to look there when all along there was another photo of F.S. other than the one we're all used to seeing (in Annie's avatar)?
Just speculation. Interesting coversation you sparked here, AGRBear! I wonder who that really is in the pic!

 From what I have always heard, Annie's avatar picture is the only one in existence, as far as we know, of FS. The little girl in Guy Richard's book doesn't look like FS at all, but then again, it's only one picture so hard to judge. But I seriously doubt that it is a 1902 FS picture and noone has heard of it. The author may just have used some random picture of some kid for all we know... Maybe someone wants to take it upon themselves to contact Guy?  ;)

Look at this face, it's obviously a little girl of pre-puberty, I'd say less than 10. This is not a grown woman. It's a shame we don't have the entire pic to see the size of the body. But I always took this pic for a child. (Maybe Lenin's wife as a child, but a child ;) )

  Hey, take that up with Guy Richards  ;)  ;D

As far as I know Guy Richards died several years ago. I always wondered about that picture where he got it from. I havenīt seen it anywhere else.

Although this is definitely not a grown woman, it's difficult to tell how old she may be. To me, she could be anywhere from 6 to 16 years old. I really can't tell. I just know that she looks a lot like Lenin's wife. Maybe Lenin's and Krupskaya's secret daughter?  :o  Kidding.   ;D
