Picture of hand bone of the Tsar?
« on: August 04, 2007, 09:25:45 PM »
Does anyone have a close up picture of the hand bone of the Tsar from the scientists who did the DNA testing, etc? I think it would be interesting to compare it to his actual xray.

That is pretty cool. I havent seen the hand bone of Nicky but I have seen his and Alix's skulls.  I also think there was an x-ray done of Alix's arm at the same time as Nicky's x-ray. Remember X-rays were still at it's early stages so it would of been a fun machine to the wealthy to play around with.

OMG, I had no idea they had X-ray machines at the turn of the century! It's just I've been under one SO many times  ::) it's strange thinking N&A did the same thing.

This is the Tsarina's xray. You can recognize her rings easily. I am amazed at all the technology that was available before the turn of the century. They also had their fingerprints recorded. I wonder if the kids had their fingerprints recorded as well.  Then when a claimant came along, they could have just tried to match their fingerprints. I wonder if the scientists compared this xray with the hand bone of the Tsar. It is all very interesting to me.

I have not seen xrays for the daughters, but I am always looking and new things keep surfacing.
Nicholas may have thought with the technology being so new, that it might not be safe for children.
The Tsar was really into the latest technology.

Nicholas was very much into the latest gadgets. I have been searching for a Hammacher-Schlemmer Catologue from 1915, because the Tsar purportedly bought everything in the catalogue that year. I wonder what that could have been. (Of the subject a bit, though).
