I don't think poor Anastasia had her hair up... I  think it was cut off before her 16th birthday... :'(

I guess the picture was taken around Easter, when Maria was in convalescent, in this chair Anastasia was rolled.

There is this long thread somewhere about the hair and how we all discerned that the photo was taken before the hair was shaved which was in June of 1917 according to Gilliard.  It looks like it was taken in the girls room since I have a photo of Maria and Nicholas with Maria in the same outfit sitting in the same big chair with a blanket over her lap...

On social/public occassions, she wouldn't have had her hair up until she was 16, but she may have had it up in private before that. Also I've seen photos of her, quite young, with her hair tucked into her hat, and not hanging down.

    I'm almost positive it was too. It looks like the girls' rooms, and also in the watercolors done in the 1930's of the children rooms, there is a light green chair with small purple flowers in that exact type of pattern in Olga/Tatiana's room.

Here's the watercolor:

http://www.alexanderpalace.com/anastasia/images/amroom.jpeg

Unfortunately, it seems that every site or book (including the Nicholas and Alexandra exhibit book) label this room wrong.....It's CLEARLY NOT Marie/Anastasia's room.  >:( The dragonfly motif on top and wall color indicates that it's Olga/Tatiana's room.

Thanks, Lanie. I kind of had a feeling that this photo  was mislabeled, because this book has many other mistakes. This is why I said that it was "allegedly" the last photo  ;). Anyway, it is a photo of an "older" Anastasia! :)

That one picture of otma in the woods, when exactly was that taken in their imprisoment again? Was it in 1917? I think that it shows the strain of how things were on them. They don't like as happy as they did previously. Tatiana in particular looks worn here.

That was discussed before, and no one could decide if it was a puppy or a stuffed animal. However, I read somewhere is was Shvibzik(sp).
Here are some more of an older Anastasia:

That´s Anastasia but definitely BEFORE captivity, my guess is 1916. For one she´s dressed in summer clothes, AND she´s got very long hair.
Title: Re: Older photos of Anastasia
Post by: Holly on January 05, 2010, 12:14:34 PM
Yes, I'd agree with you there, Ally.

I hate how so many books falsely claim a picture to be the 'last' of Anastasia ever taken. If they did any research they would realize her hair couldn't have possibly grown that long the such a short amount of time. If it were so close to her death she also wouldn't have her pearls still on and wouldn't look so thin.

Of course, this photo wasn't Anastasia's "last one" before the Ipatiev Murder. It was taken long earlier than that. Her offical "last photo" - at least by now - is the one in which she appears with short hair, in profile, reading a letter or something similar to it. Anastasia had not such long hair "few weeks before the excecution", since she had cutted them off when she was ill with measles while Revolution was starting on.

I think that in the pic you've posted, Anastasia was only 15 years old not 17, as she was when her real "last photo" was taken.

RealAnastasia.

P.S: Yes...and she was wearing her pearl necklace... ;D

Well, actually, her last photograph was the one taken of her profile aboard the Rus to Ekaterinburg. The picture you're referring to was taken in Tobolsk.

Yes...Not only you have doubts. But I didn't want to rise the "Rus" issue again...most of people doesn't like to discuss that topic. In fact, we'll never know which one was her "real" last photo, sinbce there are two or three photos that could be laveled as "the last one". I think that the more accurate word we can use is "one of the last pohotos of Anastasia"...And we must realize that maybe some new pics comes out in Russia, so these "last pics" could not be the last ones after all.

What "Rus issue"? I've never heard of anyone questioning the authenticity of the photographs taken on the Rus.

Obviously we don't know 100% if there wasn't a picture taken after arriving in Ekaterinburg, but considering Tatiana asked for their cameras in the Ipatiev House and was told no and there were negatives found in the stoves I don't see how a picture taken in her Tobolsk bedroom could even be up for debate.
Title: Re: Older photos of Anastasia
Post by: SweetAngels on January 07, 2010, 08:16:59 AM
I never knew Tatiana asked for their cameras during their captivity in the Inpatiev House. Thanks Holly for that information.
But their is so many pictures up for debated wether they are the last picture or not. I would say that the Rus picture could well be one of the real last pictures but we can't for shore tell what picture was the last because their is a lot of picture that never made it outside Russia. I haven't heard anything of a Rus issue.

Title: Re: Older photos of Anastasia
Post by: Sarushka on January 07, 2010, 03:48:56 PM
I know the family asked for the camera at the occassion of Maria´s birthday, but were rejected.

From the Ipatiev guard duty book, 1/14 June 1918:
There was the Romanovs’ usual walk. Tatyana and Maria asked for photo equipment to finish making photographic plates, but, of course, the commandant refused. The guard commander reported that somebody had stolen his Nagant revolver on record at the House of Special Purpose and it was not found. The guard of Post No. 6 stopped two gymnasia pupils, the Telezhnikov brothers who were taking photographs of the House of Special Purpose. After a search and interrogation they were sent to the Extraordinary Investigation Commission.

(Maria's birthday was 14/27 June, so this was actually two weeks prior. There is no entry in the duty book for Maria's birthday.)


But their is so many pictures up for debated wether they are the last picture or not. I would say that the Rus picture could well be one of the real last pictures but we can't for shore tell what picture was the last because their is a lot of picture that never made it outside Russia.

There are a number of photos that have been mid-identified as the "last" picture of various members of the imperial family, but Holly is right about the final photos of OTAA. They were a pair of snapshots taken by Stanley Gibbes on board the Rus en route to Ekaterinburg.

More photos from the Tobolsk period may eventually surface, but no images of the Romanovs in Ekaterinburg are known to exist. As others have said, no camera equipment was permitted inside the Ipatiev house, and neither the guards' duty book nor the imperial couple's diaries mention the Bolsheviks photographing their prisoners. Because of the whitewashed windows and double palisade no passersby could snap photos of the imprisoned Romanovs either.


Quote
I haven't heard anything of a Rus issue.

The "Rus issue" refers to controversy raised by Fate of the Romanovs regarding OTAA's treatment during their voyage to Ekaterinburg. You can read about it on other threads if you search "Rus." Discussions on that topic tend to get quite heated, however, that's no reason to avoid discussing Gibbes's snapshots.

To correct Helen A.  The photo was most likely taken before the arrest of the family.   OTMA's hair was to the nape of the neck. 

That is a much clear pic Tasia.  She looks lovely there.

End of the Romanovs (http://www.alexanderpalace.org/palace/books.html?sku=80), where this picture was found, has some of the most abominably incorrect captions you'll ever see.

I think this photo was most likely taken during the IF's 1916 visit to the Crimea. It looks to me like she's standing beside the train.

The photograph you're describing was taken in Tobolsk, not Ekaterinburg. And it is not her last known photograph. The last known photograph of the children (except Maria) were taken aboard the Rus on the way to Ekaterinburg. It's a common misconception.

OTAA left Tobolsk on 7/20 May and arrived in Ekaterinburg on 10/23 May. The latter half of the journey was by train, so the photo was probably taken on the 7th or 8th (old style).

The imperial family was killed on 4/17 July.

Does anybody know if, in Anastasias' last known photograph, her hair is up or it's just too short? or is it awig? Has her grown back enough to be put up?

Her hair was definitely reaching her neck but I doubt it was quite long enough to put up the same way they did when it was long. It wasn't much longer than it was in the first picture I posted. At the time of their deaths it was reaching their shoulders. They were all wearing hats so I'm certain they just left their hair as it was on the Rus.

Ah, thanks Holly. I didn't know their hair was reaching their shoulders by the time they were killed... I though it was shorter. It's hard to say because in most of the photos they were wearing hats...

Thank you very much for the information!
