Does anyone know if there are any pics of them from way back when they first got Paired up and began skating together?

Unlikely. Photography was very expensive in the 50s, especially in post-WWII Russia. The earliest you might find would be photos from 1958 Worlds or 1960 Olys.

Pics of the Propopovs or pics in general? Photography goes back much farther than the 1950's:

I think the process of developing photos with the use of plates/negatives, etc. was what was so expensive and could only be done by professionals considering the chemicals/equipment they used. It is possible such items were hard to come by therefore quite expensive in Communist Eastern Europe in the 1950's.

The earliest I have found after doing a little searching is from 1959. (It should be on the second page here.) http://visualrian.ru/en/site/search/?startfrom=0&q=protopopov

I couldn't access the videos. Are there any actual pics of them that far back? BTW. did any color pics survive? Or would there not have been any color?

They aren't videos, they're photographs. The older ones are on the second page (click on the "2" at the top of the photographs on the first page).

Color photography was really rare in the late 1950s and early 1960s because it was expensive and it was difficult to reproduce the colors correctly in print. It was very rare for color photos to be taken for a newspaper or magazine.

Thank you for the photo links. I always wished that I could have seen them compete and was happy when they left the Soviet Union and were able to skate in the "west".

I clicked on the link and found the pics. But when I click on a pic. for a larger version (if your surposed to),it just gives me a blank page.

I just love such vintage photos! There's even older ones of course from the 1800's. :cool:

It worked for me, but it was quite slow to download the larger picture (which isn't that much larger than the thumbnail pictures on the main page).
