Svetabel,
Another wonderful picture!  I can just see a tiny bit of the Winter Garden on the left side of the building!  It is so exciting to see the building exactly as it was shown in the floorplans. Thanks so much!
BobG



looking @ the floorplan, i can't seem to figure-out where (over what) the Winter-Garden fits....

can anyone enlighten me?

Brian,
On the ground floor plan (the one with the Winter Garden) shows a room below the "Rooms of GDss Maria Pavlovna".  It the room next to the library.  The winter garden went off that room to the  left.  You can see a little of it in both of the  Svetabel's photos on the left side of the place
more pictures of the G-G Mansion in the 1890s

(the Mansion is on the bottom of the page )

It also looks like there is a stairway (to the garden probably) leading from the room labeled "Rooms of GDss Maria Pavlovna"

Once I saw a watercolor showing Sergei's dressing room in a palace of Moscow.

Does anyone have it? I am looking for it, but cannot find it.

Thanks so much

I guess you mean this one Dressing-room of GD Sergei in the G-G mansion
