Nicholas II / Re: Re: Photos of Nicholas II #5
« on: February 18, 2019, 07:57:01 AM »
In Essentuki found a hiding place guard Nicholas II.

In Yessentuki during the repair of the roof on the building of management of Federal Treasury of the Stavropol region discovered a cache of rare photographs of the Imperial family. An envelope with pictures spent a hundred years under the old I-beam.
Most of the photos were high Cossack among colleagues and Nicholas II with children. None of them has ever been published before. On two cards even have the original autographs of the king's children.
Stavropol local historian Roman Nutrikhin found out that the pictures belonged to Anatoly Fedyushkin. In 1907, he joined the special forces, which were responsible for the protection of the Emperor and his family.
Now the find will be the pearl of the Treasury Department collection.

...It's hard to say exactly what happened unless someone can link it with a diary entry or a letter!
It is the middle or the end of May, 1913. The emperor's travel with a family down the river to Volga.
All laugh at a situation humour.
P.S. Sorry, I badly know English...
