Alexander Palace Time Machine - Book Finder
by Larisa Yermilova
Photo album covering the reigns of Alexander II, Alexander III, and Nicolas II. Emphasis on Nicholas II. Includes formal and informal photos. (Email for alternate cover photo.)
Photos of royal family gatherings in Denmark during the 1860's and 1880's; holidays in Finland, the Crimea, and Poland in the 1880's; holidays in Darmstadt, 1890's, 1900's, 1910's; bicentennial of the founding of St Petersburg, 1903; unveiling of monument to Aleksander II in Kiev, 1911; imperial visit to Moscow, August 1912; imperial visit to Kostroma, 1913.
in my opinion:
Many photos of crowd scenes at official occasions, which give a nice sense of time and place.
