Thanks for the amazing Photos Scott , you have a real eye for the architectural details !

I am interested in the Farm Palace at Peterhof .... while you were there, did you notice how far the restoration was proceeding, as did you by chance take any photos  :)

All the Best

Yes, I have some photos of the Farm Palace.  I'll try to post them later today under the proper thread.

Scott, every time I log into the forum I always check to see if you have posted any new photographs.  Your photography is perfection and I appreciate it so much!  

I did not realize that the lower Palace is so near the sea....or has the sea encroached on the land after all of these years since it was built.

It is true that each picture tells a story, some heartbreaking.  The close up of the yellow and red stripe bricks wrung mine.   Thank you for sharing with us Scott.

Best wishes,
..Arleen

I have tried to match up some of the architectural details that remain in the ruins with the same details shown in pre-revolutionary photos of the palace.

Here are a couple of old photos.  I have marked several locations on the building with red numbers:



And here are smaller versions of some of my recent photos posted above.  I have placed the matching number on the same location as shown in the old photos:

Scott,

Thank you for the breath taking photos!  They are wonderful.

The part that tugs my strings is seeing the graffiti on the wall.

Scott's "old photos" of the New Palace makes me desperate to see floorplans to understand the rooms and pictures posted in this thread.

Does ANYONE have floorplans of the new palace?  I'm sure they must exist somewhere.  Please, Please post them so we can see how the Imperial Family lived here.  Just seeing these old views of the palace was exciting: I had never seen them before.

Thanks so much.

Although no reconctruction is actually underway, this is a water colour of the 'LowerPalce" from a new book  from Peterhof I purchased in October. It is quite large and I have tried to compress it.

I just found this picture of the New Palace in 1890 before the renovations and thought it was interesting to compare it to the renovated palace.
In 1890:


After Renovations:
