Pictures of the Interiors as they were
« on: February 11, 2006, 06:52:26 PM »
I've used the search button and come up with virtually nothing, so I'm hoping that this doesn't anger anyone as I've seen it happen plenty of times here. Anyway, I'd like to get a thread started for posting all available pictures of rooms inside the Alexander Palace, with and without the IF during their lives.

There are vintage AP pictures scattered here and there, but I agree it'd be nice to have them all in one spot.

I'll post what I've got as soon as Imageshack's site maintenance is through!

Olga & Tatiana's Bedroom:




Some of these watercolors have been misidentified in various books as being Maria & Anastasia's bedroom. But, as Ortino pointed out once, the walls in these paintings are pink with dragonflies, which was the color-scheme in the Big Pair's room. (Maria & Anastasia had grey walls with butterflies).

Never seen before! Thank you! I've never seen a picture with the positions of their beds or anything.

Well, thanks! I've got lots more, but Imageshack is sooooo slow tonight...

That photo you like was originally posted by Helene, I think.
