I love the progression of the years....from 1904 and 05, 1905 and 06, 1907 and then 1910. 

Seeing the church go up....which one is it? and is it still there?  But I love the changes in MK's mansion as well.
The photograph with the people and the streetcars in the snow is priceless! 

What is the tall object on the right in the last photograph?  The tall slabs.....   It is interesting seeing the outbuildings, I've never seen them before., 

Joanna you are wonderful to post these for us!

That picture is of the main reception room, and the curator who took me through the  mansion told me that Mathilde had a special floor wax sent from Poland to make the floor shine like glass. The chandeliers in the room have a motif of golden swans in reference to the ballet "Swan Lake". The winter garden is visible at the end of the room, and today has a small collection of greenery and a trickling fountain. Next door, the dining room has been stripped of its decoration for the most part, as has her bedroom and her bathroom. No trace of her sunken tub or the mosiacs and marble the bathroom was famous for remain. Her son's room, where Lenin worked and also famously spoke from the balcony, is preserved with Lenin's desk. The main entrance hall is imposing and grand, just the place to make a stunning inital first impression greeting one's guests at the top of the stairs.
