Hello BobG :)

The buildings you photographed are not in the Millionnaya Street. They are in the Admiralteiskaya Nabereznaya, facing the Neva river.

Please, I am hoping that someone can point me to the place where I can read Ella Cordasco's Diary. The link below is not working. I am really trying to figure out how the Plaoutines fit in with the Woodhouses. So, if anyone can help with this, please let me know. :)

There are fascinating reminiscences of Ella Woodhouse Cordasco, the daughter of the British Consul in St. Petersburg A.W. Woodhouse. She writes of living in a dacha in Strelna commuting daily with her father to St. Petersburg, of the days of the revolution, leaving for England while her father remained after the departure of Ambassador Buchanan, and a lengthy report of the Times correspondent of the raid on the British Embassy on August 31st and their subsequent incarceration in the Peter & Paul Fortress before finally been allowed to leave.

She also writes of her mother's marriage to Mikhail Sergeievich Plaoutine. "...Their house in Petrograd was also in the Millionnaya, the street parallel to the Palace Quay, leading out of the great square in front of the Winter Palace, alonside which, was the famous "Hermitage" art gallery; next to that was a military establishment, and a few doors along, the Plaoutine's..."

I have read that N.P. Sablin had an appartment on the Millionnaya and GD Michael Alexandrovich took refuge in one. I am curious of the history of these houses along the Millionnaya and who lived there. Does anyone know of sources, photos c1900's, state of these today?

Mike, in your post of Films-Hermitage of July 29th you wrote of your school at 204 Millionnaya. Do you know the history of the building? Is it possible it was Plaoutine's!

No, my No204 school was at 12, Millionnaya, while Paoutine's house, built just before WW1, was at 25, Millionnaya. This is how it looks today:

One of the most expensive addresses in Petersburg, either then or now.

Hi! Thanks for the replies. I am thrilled to be able to read the memories. I've been trying to research the Plaoutines for ages, so it is fun to see memories from someone who remembers some of them.

Regards,
Sarah
