At that time I was totally unfamiliar with blogging, I was anxious to begin posting, and I was hasty to the point of carelessness. Please accept my most humble apologies. It won't happen again.

I've created this thread in the months since Jim posted his initial question:
Standart Interior Photos
The majority of them do come from the Beinicke site.

AJSimon --
There is a thread or two already discussing the post-revolution fate of Standart. I can't remember the details, but if you do a search on "Marti" you'll find your answer. Or, check out a copy of The Court of the Last Tsar, by Greg King. His chapter on imperial transportation covers Standart's demise.
