По официальной версии, детей у Гельцер не было, однако в 2005 г. телеканал «Культура» продемонстрировал документальный фильм, где утверждалось, что до революции Гельцер была едва ли не гражданской женой Э. Маннергейма, что они едва не обвенчались в 1924 г. в церкви на Поварской и что у них был общий сын Эмиль. Биографами Маннергейма эта информация не подтверждается.Екатерина Гельцер жила в Москве, в доме артистов МХТ в Брюсовом переулке (№ 17). В 1964 году на фасаде здания была установлена мемориальная доска в её честь (скульптор А. В. Пекарев[7], архитектор Г. П. Луцкий). Е. В. Гельцер скончалась 12 декабря 1962 года.

Bottle

Rob Houghton, from Birmingham England, has given me permission to share this picture of his great great grandad Alfred Scott, born 1864, with his whippet "Bottle." Alfred worked for the railway and settled in Kilvey Hill, Swansea. (I would guess the picture is from the early 1900s to the teens.)
