Hello  
Wow! :D :D :D
What a hilarious photo of Anastasia! I really don't get into photos as much as many people here do, but that one is Brilliant!
Michelle I do think that you're right-- the person resting on the bed certainly looks more like Olga to me!
Any other perspectives?

I like pics of the children when they are doing things that any other kid might do
Like these


   The person in the top photo looks like Tatiana -- is this some exotic spa or steam bath?
I recognize Anastasia in the lower photo, but I am so confused by the upper one ...help?

easily confused rskkiya  ;)

I agree that it also looks like Olga, but remember that out of all the sisters the ones that looked the most alike were probably Olga and Maria.

I've seen that picture identified in a book as that being Maria on the bed. This picture was apparently taken in the younger girls' bedroom, and since Maria and Anastasia shared their bedroom, it's likely Maria.

Oh, and that photo on top of the one of Anastasia "curtsying" I believe is Alexei, again, based on what I have seen it identified as in books and the way he looks to me.

I thought it was Alexei ???, but I have no idea where he is or what he's doing. It's a mystery ;)

In my opinion, it is Marie who is lying down and being amused by her far more rambunctious sister, who is having a fine ol' time making that ghastly grimace courtesy the false teeth.

The child covered up with the bed coverings in the other photo is, I am 99% sure, Alexei.

What he`s doing?
It seems to me that we is playing as a soldier, with a pillow or a sheet on his head as a helmet, and with some kind of furniture as a fortification.
Look carefully and you can see Alexei pointing out something as if it was a gun.
It seems to make sense a young boy playing as a soldier as Alexei liked to were uniforms and was visiting his father at his headquarters.
What do you think?

Sergio, I think you hit the nail right on the head! And now I'm reminded that as a child I used to do the same thing--hide under covers, pillows, etc., then aim a toy weapon at all would-be attackers so I might protect my "fort"!

Alexei looks like he wants to swing around the pole like any normal kid. I remember my grandmother had a pole like that off her backporch. We use to wrap our hands around to pole, jump off the stairs and swing around. But look at Anastasia, she has a look on her face like she knows it isn't a good idea. Were the girls required to watch over him too like his Sailor Nannies? Make sure he didn't hurt himself?

Two pictures that would go great in this section are the two that show all five of the children with their heads shaved. One shows front, one back, and only their heads are shown. It seems the measles they all had in 1917 caused their hair to fall out in chunks so they shaved their heads.
The two pictures are very amusing.
I have them but have no way of scanning them in.
Could someone who has these pictures send them to this site?
