hm i dont remember Felix mentioning about  the pommeranian, but I think this dog doesnt look like it much. the pommeranian has more fluffy hair.

Zenaida in 1924
There is great dignity & sadness in that picture.Presumably taken in 1924 at the villa in Rome she rented with her husband opposite the British Embassy.Jacques Ferrand must have shared my thoughts as he used it as the very last photograph as he used it as the very last in his 6 volume series of photos of the Russian aristocracy.



actually, it's not the last foto of the last volume.    it's last foto of volume #3.

An old black and white photograph is a secret about a secret. The more it tells you the less you know.

Sanatorium in the palace of the Yussupov in the Crimea. Zenaida sits at the center of the table,to the right Irina,
and Felix stands third to the right. Found it in a Russian site, says it was taken in October 1916.






Taken in the park of sanatorium. You can see Zenaida, Felix and Irina clearly in this one. Taken on November 1, 1916.

Hi ashanti01,

Are you certain that the date is November 1, 1916?

Could you please provide the Russian link?

Thanks in advance,

Margarita

Your translation was perfect ashanti01.  :D

The reason I ask is that I understood that he was supposed to be in Petrograd at the time.

Thank you for helping me.

Best regards,

Margarita

I did see them and I must admit I'm amazed how you keep finding these great pic's! The last picture you posted of Zenaida Yussupov was just stunning, because it just screams elegance, grace and beauty.

The Yusupovs and their relatives the Soumarokov-Elstons in the end of the 1880s. You can see Felix-senior, Zenaida and their eldest son at left in the picture
