My 88 year old grandmother just told my cousin not to feel bad about losing her job, but not to do anything with men for money. She literally does not give a shit anymore.
Sorry for the bad quality, but I found this amazing lithograph of a fumbling 1820s medical student attempting to give a gynaecological exam. Her face is priceless.
The Imperial family in the yard at Tobolsk: 1917.
Holy crap- where’d this come from??
I THINK I found it on the Alexander Palace Time Machine Forum in one of the topics about pictures in exile? I can’t remember exactly. I think I may have seen it at least once before and then couldn’t find it again until recently.
