I'm wondering if any of the pictures I've posted recently, are new to anyone?  Maybe I've just missed them on other posts.  I would really love to see some more pictures of the right wing.

Pastpalacelife,

Most of the pictures are new to me, and they are wonderful to see. Keep posting.

Also, I think we all would love to see more pictures of the right wing.  I for one have always wondered if any pictures exist of Alexander III and Marie Feodorovna's rooms in the right wing! Let's hope some turn up someday!

Pastpalacelife,
 
They're all new to me and thanks for posting them. The elevated view of the Palace in reply 35 gives an excellent perspective of the AP in the park and looking toward the town. Also liked Olga's christening departure pic. Unfortunately no identifiable individuals can be seen.
 A question: what's the date of those photos showing ongoing repair work? I'm thinking 1945-1955?  :) :)

I'm sorry my postings aren't better organised, I'm new to pic posting.  (And I'm also a very unorganised person)  As far as the dates on the restoration work, if you go to the website where I got them it might tell you.  Once again, I probably wrote it down, but where?  I was just so excited when I saw these pictures.

Did you notice the three men are standing on the roof of the semi circle hall?
