Atlas of Tsarskoe Selo in 1857 - Catherine & Alexander Palaces

Included in the post below are our current maps of Tsarskoe Selo near Saint Petersburg. My sister and I have walked all of the streets while staying in this beautiful city for many weeks. We have researched the history of its public and private buildings!

my question is whether there are any letters to and by Prince Ioann regarding the assassination of his Uncle GD Serge Alexandrovich in 1905?

This is the only letter I could find by Prince John to his father regarding Sergei's death. He was living and studying in Livadia during this time.

Livadia.  March 13, 1905
My dear Dad!
... Firstly, I thank you very much for the calendar and sincerely ask you to forgive me for not responding for a long time.  Secondly, dear Uncle Sergei!  I think a lot about You this time.  Did you see the parts of the body that remained of him or not?  (I skip the question of who you learned about the demise, because you already wrote).  I write to You, because I know how You loved the deceased and then to pour out my soul for repentance.  Uncle's death made a great impression on me.  Let me, please, skip the fact, how we found out about it, because I write about it in detail to Tuske...

Alexandra Feodorovna / Re: Alexandra and her Health Part 2

So Olga had bad eyesight if she was visited multiple times by Alexandra's ophthalmologist during 1902. Did they improve after 1902?
The doctor continued to treat Olga in the Alexander Palace and Peterhof later in 1902 and after.Joanna
Until to a certain year or until they placed under house arrest/headed to Tobolsk?

Archival documents that I have reveal specific years included with others of the family. I have not read of the ophthalmologist in Tobolsk. Their dentist did travel to Tobolsk to treat the family.

On the Great war forum section Women and the great war there is a posting on Nurses serving in Moscow and St Petersberg 1914-1918 There are  a number of replies dealing with the Anglo-Russian hospital. They include photos one looks like AOTMA and the other has ON TN, DEMF, Maria P the elder, and Victoria M (Ducky)

I recently read a Russian memoir on the Anglo-Russian Hospital in St. Petersburg with quite a few negative comments about the Ambassador's wife Mrs. Buchanan which surprised me as I had believed she was beloved in the community.
