The Imperial Family outside the Winter Palace: July 1914.
This is the gorgeous new statue of Alexandra and Nicholas unveiled in Saint Petersburg yesterday. It is located along the Obvodny Canal near the Warsaw Railway Station.
This is wonderful! I’m so happy they built this! I hope someone leaves a big, beautiful bunch of lilacs for the empress!
