Photos of the IF in the AP's formal rooms?
« on: February 17, 2005, 03:43:50 PM »
Hello  :D

I have never seen photos of the IF in the parade rooms (semi-circular hall, billard hall, portrait hall ect....) I have seen only the portrait of Alexandra feodorovna on which she stood behind the beautiful chairs and palms of the portrait hall...

Did someone know such photos or pictures of the IF? during a formal luncheon for example... the IF has done so much photos during its life in the AP that it seems to me that such photos should exist somewhere.. so if someone have them, I will be glad to see them   :)

I would love to see them too, I would also like to see if there is a picture of the children on the mountain slide if one exists. I have read letters describing the children playing on it but I have never seen photos.

I havent seen pics in the formal rooms either

I have seen some on the mountain slide... if you are referring to the winter time, with the snow, there are pictures of the kids using sleighs in several books

Hello La Mashka and welcome to the Forum.

The series of formal photographs of the grand duchesses gathered around a small table, were taken in the Portrait Hall.

The photographs of Granduchesses Olga and Tatiana in their court dresses were taken in the Empress' Corner Salon.   They stood on small platforms in order to allow their trains to drape.

Also there are a series of photographs in the Yale albums of Alexandra with an artist in the Portrait Hall.
