The Alexander Palace / Regarding The Alexander Park Bridges
« on: October 14, 2006, 02:18:38 PM »
I am confused about the bridges in the Alexander Park, specifically the one where Nicholas is sitting with guards behind him, and then some of the children are photographed with the guards, etc.  I've seen some pics on here that look like the same bridge, but if you count the number of ironwork arches and swirls, it can't be the "exact" spot.  Maybe same bridge, but different side?  I would like a closeup picture of the exact spot on the bridge where the IF was sitting.  I'd like to compare also if any of the same trees exist...or same cracks in the masonry work, etc.  And where exactly too is this bridge, is it just down in front of the semi-circular exterior?   Thanks

Hi All,  My first post, Has anyone ever seen the right side of the palace (part the navy occupies) Like perhaps when Bob A. was there, someone opened a door and he caught a quick glance.  Or someone who speaks Russian has asked one of the people who work in that side, what condition it is in?  I know I've read the rooms still exist, does this mean the original walls, or some of the furniture, or what?  Thanks  PPL
