Yes, I've seen that photo and am sure most here have as well, but I can scan and post the pic if anyone else hasn't seen it. I'm sure it's in one of my books somewhere.

I have seen that one too--I believe it was taken in Finland, in 1913, or on Dnieper beach, near Mogilev, in 1916.
Tom, try to upload your pictures with www.photobucket.com or www.imageshack.us .  You just need to make acount there.

Most people here have the photo in their collections, but are afraid to post it on the boards. I'll never understand how Aleksey's body could be seen as innapropriate, but the drawings and paintings of the murder scene are okay(not saying the murder scenes shouldn't be posted. They are history, after all. But I've never heard anyone complain about them like they do nudity).

I agree, and after all it depends in what way the nudity is shown, when it is shown in some form of art I don't have troubles with it, as long it isn't too much lurking to pornography(sorry for the word here :-[

I think the world has gone mad! I don't think any of us are going to perve over a young lad butchered some 90 years ago. In England you can't even take photos of your own children anymore without getting into trouble. Common sense is what is needed.

They're really not that scandalous, folks. OTMA's private photo albums contain pictures of their father and their brother swimming nude, so I don't think the IF was terribly uptight about it. But in deference to the modern sensitivity about nudity, I'll post direct links instead of the photos themselves:

from Maria Nikolaevna's album
with Igor Konstantinovich in 1916

What the photos do show are the bruises, I assume that is what they are, that Alexis had from his illness and from an historical point of view this is intresting with regard to the health of Alexis. Clearly here he is well and seems to be a normal weight, which of course he was not in Yekaterinburg before he was murdered. Had his whole skeleton been found it may of been of use to work out height and bone structure but I understand that very little was found

I suppose there will be other remains scattered in the local area. Quite a lot of teeth are missing and these are almost impossible to destroy and must be near by

I've seen these before indeed(I even forgot I had),

They're not scandalous at all, and there are thousands of pictures like that, almost every parent has taken pictures of their child nude as a baby, or young child. And after all, it was accepted back then, aldo to our point of view it seems strange since we see the Victorian era as prudish about sexuality, puberty and the differences between males and females.
