Oh Antonio - Yikes!  I'm so sorry I did mean Antonio and not Dominic in my post above; please forgive me. And again thanks so much for the platform information. Have you read about this in a book?

Hello Cathy,
Do not worry! :) Sometimes i cannot remember how i know something, either by reading or by old photographs... I think that seing old photographs i understood more or less how did the "bridge" work.

Photographs clarify everything for me Antonio, I'm afraid I haven't much imagination about how things work and how they even look as palace life is so far distant from my world.   Thank you so very much for all of your lovely photographs, they open up EVERYTHING for me.

I am looking for the posted photos of the pet gravesites on the children's island, but I keep getting lost!

Is there anyone who could/would point me to the correct thread?  Thank you!

I know a few years ago that Atlantis did some fundrasing to restore that island - perhaps this is the result of that work and other fundraising?

Despite their noble efforts I don't think anything was done except clean-up and secure the outside.  That was something to be grateful for - thank you Linda and Atlantis!  The island still looks overgrown.

Thanks Joanna - At least the weather is not destroying the inside anymore.  I can't wait to see it in 'real' life!!

Does anyone know who is with Alexei on the dock ?
Life may not be the party we expected, but while we are here, might as well dance..

Its so interesting for me to learn new things about the Alexander Palace like for example about the childrens play house, I have some questions: Whats inside the play house now? and why was the water drained from the pond? (well atleast I think it was)

Does anyone have more pictures of the childrens play house or the bridge from the time when the Romanovs lived there? The other picture was GREAT! ;D

And also I still don't understand how that bridge works! :-/

Thanx!

Hello Anya. The bridge was pulled over to the opposite bank by chains/ropes fixed to each side of the lake. Imagine a rubber band with a cardboard matchbox attatched to it. Stretch it out over two sticks ( not too tight). Now if one side of the band is pulled at one of the sticks, the matchbox will move to the other stick, and vise versa. Hope this explains..Best Wishes.William :

Re..Who is with Alexis on the dock ?
Hello Robert. Knowing how Alexis was never allowed to be alone. I can assume that his companion on the dock, is probably the sailor Nagorny..Best Wishes..William

Sorry to say it’s not Nagorny. This man is an Army officer. Nagorny was a sailor and would have worn a different uniform. I have a few photos of him somewhere…he was slimmer than this guy. As this photo was taken after the Revolution this man must have been an officer guarding the Imperial Family. But I agree, Nagorny probably wasn’t very far, keeping an eye on Alexis.
