The Alexander Palace / Re: Right Wing of Alexander Palace

Thanks for yet another illustrated, fascinating story!

Thanks for your kind reply. My pastime is travelling to Russia/Ukraine and photographing contemporary views matching pre-1918 postcards. I've been at this since 1979, and now have a large postcard/photograph collection, but since the field is so large, my efforts are still spotty, even after all these years. I've used the Baedeker guides and some old Russia travel memoirs to find places. I'm of the generation whose grandparents left Russia pre-1918.
Presently, no blog, but perhaps in the future.
I'll try to send you a message (without running afoul of the Forum Administrator!)

Yes, seriously, it's not easy to find the photo posting directions.  I have posted (about my mother-in-law's sister-in-law, Audrey Emery & family) on and followed this list for many, many years mostly without logging in, hence my status as a "Newbie."  So "New Users Read First Please" is not something that an Old User who has forgotten how to post photos gravitates to.
A little more graciousness from the Forum Administrator towards forgetful Old Users I think would be nice.

My visit was in September 2007, and the church wasn't open.
I'll try to post some photos soon: not easy to find the directions!
Please keep up your research and posts. I love Russia Before & After, which has been a theme of my many trips there over the last 20+years -- but mine are nowhere nearly so good as yours.

Thanks so much Joanna for posting this info on Znamenka and Mikhialovksa! About 10 years ago I was lucky to roam around the Znamenka grounds, and I'll try to post a few of my photos. I just love all your historical information -- please keep it up!
