Thanks EmmyLee!  Great pictures!  do you have any recent pictures of the west or the ring wing of the palace?

If you browse around on this site, you can see quite a few recent photos of the right wing. Joanna directed me to the site-- wish I knew Russian.

This link takes you to photos of the Blue Room in the right wing.

That's great!  Thank you!  There is a lot of work that has to be done to restore the right wing, looking at those pictures and seeing everything that is on the floor, it will be great to see it restored!

I think this is the wheelchair from the war photo above - still extant - now in the Agate Pavilion:

I have just realised from looking at the floorplans that a second balcony existed in the corner where the chapel used to be, a rather unusual place to put an outside balcony. I really wish that we had some photographs of the rooms behind the semi-circular hall and the reception rooms behind the collonade. The more one looks at the floorplans of the Alexander Palace, the more one realises that it was actually quite a practical and livable building. Perhaps this was why it was chosen by Alexandra as a home. A bit like a large English country house, I suppose.

Hi Brassov! If you're interested, we have a thread on this:

http://forum.alexanderpalace.org/index.php?topic=14466.0

Isn't it great to notice new things about the palace no matter how many times you've looked at the photos or floor plans before?

Thank E. Yes, you are right. This building "speaks" to one. I am just dying to see the "backrooms". The interior of the kitchen building, bathrooms etc.
Regards

This is fantastic! Do you happen to have a rendering of the upstairs as well?

Hi, no I don't have a layout of what the rooms upstairs looked like. There isn't as many for one thing. I do have more information on what the sick room looked like, although not exactly where it was. Yale University has a lot of photos, and some of them are of the sick room as well as on the balcony outside the Maple Drawing Room. Haven't laid it out on computer yet, just on paper.
