Can you post some of the good photos of the interior that are unknown, e.g. the rooms from different angles.  It was after all an upper class mansion by Ekaterinburg standards as set out in your book which gives an excellent description of it, if I may say so.  I am specifically thinking of the upper floor rooms, although I am sure there are interesting ones of the lower floor...
Thanks.

I find it very difficult to believe that there is no official photographic documentation of the Imperial Family and their retainers arriving into Ekaterinburg. This normal procedural identification would not have been overlooked by the authorities upon their arrival into the city. Assuming it happened with the first arrivals, it would be difficult to believe the same error repeated itself with the arrival of the second party.

I would imagine that if such oictures were taken [personally, I think they were] they most like werre destroyed or sent to Moscow, where they have yet to resurface.
Also, with so many reporters in the city, both Russian & foreign, propably any overtly taken photos were confiscated.
Will be interesting to see what turns up with time.
Cheers,
Robert

Could it be possible that any photograph taken in the Ipatiev House could still be filed as classified top secret in Moscow? I don't know if there's a time limit on such files in Russia... there is in the US. Just a thought....

Hi Nerdycool,

What you have suggested seems very plausible. I wonder whether there is similar restriction in Russia, such as the 100 year rule before some files can be released for examination?

I wonder if there is any way of finding out if Russia has a time limit on such things.It would be interesting to find out there are some photos that were taken.Would be even more interesting to see them.

Yes, I've seen that site before. It seems a bit immature.

Thanks for the link!

I remember the picture (I forget what book it is in, I'll have to look) of Alix, Tatiana and Olga sitting on the roof at Tobolsk, captioned "The last known picture of Alix and any of her daughters". So I guess the pictures on board the steamer "Rus" is the clearest last photos we have of them. I think the picture of Alexei with his hands up was taken on the steamer, also. (In that dumb Kitchen Boy book, Lenoid Sednev says he took the picture in the Ipatiev house.  ::))

It would be quite a revelation...to see any photos of the rest of the family, in Tobolsk or Ekaterinburg.

They might exist, but Russia has such ridiculous laws, and it was run by such boneheads for such a long time that anything left concerning the Romanovs is extremely hard to get to, if existing at all.

I have a photograph on my computer that I got from my friend Lanie, and I saw it again on some website but I forget where, anyway it is the last known photo of Aleksey taken in the Ipatiev House, with Olga. They are sitting at a table, from what I can see there's flowers on the table. I have it on my computer and will send it to anyone who wants to see it via e-mail, maybe that can help clear things up about it. On the website it said it was taken in June 1918. Of course the same was said about the photo of Aleksey and his dog which appears at the end of N&A The Family Albums.

Vive-H,
   Is this the photo of Olga and Alexis near some dinning tables (it almost looks like a restaurant) and Olga is wearing a rather large hat? I thought that one was taken on the "Rus" steamer.

I just reread the piece on the items found after the murders. It seems there were some  glass slides and 3 reels of Kodak film. Are the whereabouts of these items known? The fact that they were found in the stoves at the Popov House were they in fact burnt?

Were the family's cameras ever found?

Many years ago, I got a book from the library called "The End of the Romanovs" I forget the author, but it was a Russian name. There were pictures in there that claimed to be taken at the house, but were obviously taken on Alexandra's balcony. The girls looked younger, had long hair and pretty dresses. The author claimed the pictures were rare and taken a couple days before the murders. It's a shame such bogus information made it to publication. When I first saw the book I was still in high school. Imagine if some student were to use that falsehood for a report.
