Floor Plan of the Tobolsk Governor's Mansion
« on: February 20, 2007, 06:36:52 PM »
I am absolutely certain that a recent posting contained a floor plan of the Tobolsk Governor's Mansion, but, for the life of me, I cannot find the floor plan now, even after extensive searching.  (This is not to be confused with the floor plan of the Ipatiev House.)  Could someone point me in the right direction?  Thanks.

Second floor:


I believe these were sketched by Greg King.

Yup -- that's Greg's handwriting, and his drawing -- made to the best of his knowledge.  ;D  If anyone has corrections, please let us know!

Hi Penny,

If one looks at photographs of the governor's mansion, it seems to have approximately 11 to 12 windows lengthwise, not 9.  This plan looks too condensed.  Also in vol 5 issue 2 of your own publication where the interior of the mansion is described, it seems as if the rooms follow a different order than the above plan...

Just wondering. :)

You are so very right, Pers!  Now that I look closely -- at the lower floor especially -- I think this is an old version.  I'll ask G for the most recent one when I speak to him next.

Any idea where the kitchen was?
 Also, I understand the building still stands. What is it used for now?

It appears as though it may be a museum. Here's some contemporary photos. The interior shot is a recreation of the tsar's study:
