Some music from Romanov Russia Today

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vNjkSS7iPko

Apparently it's a recording of a song that was written and performed in 1914 at the Little Pair's lazaret.

Was just looking at that on Tumblr. Gives me chills to think the grand duchesses were there when that recording was made, and if one had just happened to speak we'd have her voice on record.

Perhaps this should be moved to one of the "book" threads, but for now I will post it here.

Not to tempt those who cannot read Russian, but a nice book has come out on the Empress' lazaret.
I only just now received a copy.

It's ironic that the local historian who wrote the book was actually born in 1932 in the city hospital on the grounds of which the lazaret was located.

It's a small book: 6" x 6", but has a lot of interesting information: the history of the building before it became Her Majesty's Lazaret, later fate, then and now photos, accounts of people who served there or were patients, etc.
In 2013, during the ceremony for erecting a memorial plaque near the hospital, one of the people attending was Boris V. Ravtopulo's granddaughter.
She allowed the author to use materials from her family's archives for his book.

A further irony is that when the author was in his sixties, after many years of working in the military industrial manufacturing complex, he was hospitalized with heart trouble back in the same hospital where he had been born. The doctors said that he had to retire from his job, and eventually he took up researching local history topics -- including the hospital itself.
