Standart interior photos
« on: April 04, 2006, 04:23:02 PM »
I know there have been threads in the past with photos of the Standart, but since Harald's unfortunate departure, they're sort of at loose ends. I thought it would be best to start a fresh thread of interior photos, so we don't have to wade through the gaps Harald left behind.

As Harald's photos have become something of a sensitve issue, I won't be posting any from his collection. Here's his website, where you can see them for yourself:

The majority of my photos come from the Beinicke albums.

Same room? I'm pretty sure it's a dining room, but it looks a bit smaller and darker...

The rest of these rooms are unidentified. If anyone can help label them, I'd appreciate it.  :)

Unknown Room #3
(The Room of the Squiggly Wallpaper):


I think this could be the same room in post #5, the room that looks like a dining room. I can't see the wallpaper well enough in the first set of photos to be sure, though...

My guesses:
#4 Aleksei's playroom Lower Dacha
#7 Lower Dacha (same room as Help ID-ing various rooms Sarushka's reply #57 http://forum.alexanderpalace.org/YaBB.cgi?num=1139717923/45#59)

I think you're right about room #4 -- I was fooled by the life-preserver-shaped photo frames on the wall behind Maria & Anastasia, but the wallpaper does look like a match with Aleksei's playroom:


I think you're correct about room #7, too. Here's another photo of that corner:


Would that be Alix's private sitting room at Peterhof, maybe? It's clearly not her reception room...

Sarushka,
 thank you so much for re-starting this thread & for posting the Beineke photos. I think I may have an answer to the confusion I have regarding a certain photo of Alexandra on her chaise, which has previously been published as being in her Mauve boudoir (when it is clearly not there). It is another of her sitting rooms (perhaps even on the Standart), with a solid wall to her right, rather than the wood screen which was to the right of her chaise in the Alexander Palace boudoir.  The screen did not have numerous framed photos/pictures, as is shown in the photos you've posted. Not a major point of history, but fun to decipher the details :) Thanks once again! Those Beineke pictures are so numerous and for some of us, impossible to identify.

After going through the pictures again, I noticed that Aleksei's playroom and classroom had the same wallpaper. Last two pictures from http://www.livadia.org/trw/peterhof/
So it could be either one or was there only one room used as playroom and classroom?
