Those are excellent. I hope you find more. I've seen some of them only in tiny thumbnails on Harald's Standart website. I'm very glad to have larger versions.

Too bad that personal color photography wasn't invented until so much later.

I hate always feeling that the past was "lived in black and white".

Those photos are indeed beautiful!   :D

I understand your sentiment. Think though how much poorer we would have all have been if there was no black and white photography. All that would have existed would have been commissioned paintings.

Seeing photos again of the Standart makes one realise how very much was lost when Nicholas II lost the throne through poor rule. It is worth knowing that there is a museum to do with Imperial Yachts at Peterhof.

Wow, I wish that I'd seen this thread sooner. These photos are wonderful, since I've never seen very many interior shots of the Standart.

I have the complete set of these photos in full size and restored.  Thanks for posting these.  They were taken just before the yacht was handed over to the IF for their use.

I'll look through my files and see what I can do.  If I post any photos, they will be posted totally free of watermarks.
