It IS hard to tell, but it does look like it could possibly be Alexei. Yet, is that boy's hair too straight to be Alexei at that age?

That's what I thought. Seems like Aleksei's hair was curly until he was a toddler.

Could the child in the upper left photo be Aleksei?




Hi Sarushka, did you mean this one?



It's grand duke Kirill Vladimirovich.

Yes, thank you Fabian. I could see a resemblance but couldn't figure it out for sure.

Where is the best archive available of Imperial Family pictures?

Where might one go for the best quality copies as opposed to some of the grainy ones found online?  Thanks.

GARF, I believe, has the largest collection of photographs of the imperial family.

Don't suppose there's an accessible version in English?

Can people help direct me to any pictures of Alexei and Joy in a sitting or lying position?  The better quality, of course the better.  So far this is the only one I have found.
