Last Known Photograph Of Alexei And Olga

The last known photograph of Tsarevich Alexei and Grand Duchess Olga, taken in May 1918, two months before their murders.


  1. Amazing (and sad) photo of Olya and her brother.

    I know you like dangling modifiers. Here is an experpt from a plot synopsis of the film thriller, "The Sum of All Fears":


    When President Nemerov takes responsibility for an unauthorized gas-warfare attack on Grozny, the capital city of Chechnya, President Fowler and his administration become concerned with the volatility of Nemerov's military policies and respond by sending NATO peacekeeping troops to Chechnya. Meanwhile, the nuclear bomb arrives in a crate in Baltimore, Maryland, and is placed at an American football stadium disguised as a cigarette vending machine.

  2. I now have my Halloween costume idea for this year: "a football stadium disguised as a cigarette vending machine".

    Thank you.

    Until your inspiration, I was planning to go out dressed as a dangling modifier.
