As an animal lover myself, I've wondered about all these critters. And when we were in St. P 12 years ago, I cherished the sight of every cat I saw, knowing full well that pets simply did not survive the Siege of Leningrad.


Janet,

If you lived for some time in an average old Russian apartment building in Saint Petersburg, you might well reconsider your pleasure at seeing another cat roaming. While some people take good care of their cats with litter boxes, most just let them roam the hallways to squat or spray at will. After a few decades of this, the dash from the street to your appartment door becomes something like a military training exercise in a tear gas chamber. It is very hard to hold one long breath when your flat is on the third floor.

De rien Anastacia  :)

Clockwork, It comes from the photographic museum of Lausanne, you can find the entire picture in the book of Daniel Girardin (the curator of the museum), but there is an error in it, it is said that it is Olga, I write to the writer and he confirms the error, he don't know really the date between april and July 1917. There is an other picture with Tatiana and Alexis the same day ;).

Helene--do you know where I could go about purchasing that book?  Would I have to write the University of Lausanne?  (I'm lucky I know enough French to get by!)

I buy it on Amazon  ;), the name of the book is "Précepteur des Romanov", it is about Pierre Gilliard when he was tutor of the children.

I tried to find an exact date for those pictures of Tatiana with Ortino and Aleksey, with help of the Nicolas`s diary. I must be end of March-beggining of April 1917, when the others were ill, and the ex-tsar spent time with Tatiana and Aleksey. I would suggest that they were made the 7 of april: "Work with Tatiana and Aleksey".

What picture with Alexei? The man standing next on the bridge is much too big to be him.

In the book "Tsar", of Peter Kurth, it is said April, so maybe... It is always said that Tatiana and the tsar broke up ice floes in the canal under the watchful of guards, it is maybe the "work" the tsar wrote in his diary, you are a good investigator  ;)
