The décor of the playroom seems to have evolved over time as the children grew older.  Gone are the toys in the colorized photo, with furniture moved in to take their place, giving the room the appearance of a spacious sitting room.  Does anyone know where the toys were stored after they were removed from this room, and also where they've been stored since WWII?

The imperial children, behind palace walls, were unaware of household items. What things do we still use today from 125 years ago illustrated in the book below?  The kitchen whisk is familiar and …. ?

What a delightful set of illustrations!  In the kitchen, may of the items shown are still in use today:  grater, mincer, carving knife, ladle, serving spoon.  A few other items are recognizable (match safe, for one) but not in widespread use anymore.
