Vladimir,

Where did you get the picture of the Lyon Hall after the war?  Is it from a book?

Vassili,

Are you still looking for interior pictures?  I've got a ton.

It is from Geglov2-3 website. He collected a lot of photographs of Tsarskoe Selo.

Very very interesting.

I'm sorry nothing is up yet.  I'm having a very difficult time getting the pictures to show up.  I've got one last thing to try and if that doesn't work I'm going to email them to the forum and post them that way.  Terribly sorry!

Hi Chad,

If you want you can post the pics to my mail, I think I can upload before the FA, who has so much to do.

Let me know, it is not a problem.

I think this should work.  Here are a few pics of the amber room, and I'll try and post some more of various rooms next week.  I tried to get pictures of the room at various times of day.  These are pics I found on the internet and to the best of my knowledge are not copyrighted.

I thought I'd put up a few more.

An overall view of the White Vestibule



One of the ceilings (I THINK it is the first anteroom, but I'm not sure)



The Green Pilaster Room.  The pilasters are green foil under glass.  One of the adjoining rooms is the Red Pilaster Room, which is more frequently photographed.  Unfortunatley, I don't have any good pictures of it on my computer.



Does anyone have any current pictures of the other restored anterooms?  They were completed only about a year or so ago, and I've only seen pictures of the one I've posted.  I'm especially curious to see pictures of the second anteroom as it had huge stands for porcelain before the war.

Nice photo.  Any idea when the Tabetiere will be restored?  Are they starting work on Catherine the Great's private apartments soon?

Do you know how old these plans are Brian?  The drawings are wonderful.  Tell us what you know about them and the Peterhof also.
