Giacomo Quarenghi

Does anyone have pictures of any of the rooms of the Alexander Palace that still contained Quarenghi's original designs?  I know that the main ceremonial halls were kept to his designs under Nicholas II, but I was more curious about some of the other rooms.  It is my understanding that Nicholas had the original library converted from 2 story to 1.  Are there any pictures of it before it was altered?  Thanks!

ArchitectCS, I think this photo of the Concert Hall before Meltzer's redesign is of the area of the Maple Room and extension of the children's rooms on the second floor:
