18thC Summer "amusement" carriage, belonged to Tsarevich Alexis Petrovich, the son of Peter the Great - in Royal Carriages collection at the Kremlin, Moscow. I'm not sure what the 'amusement' was - or was it just looking at this tumbling along with someone inside it?
Anna Vyrubova (1884-1964). Anna was Empress Alexandra's best friend and lived in a separate small home adjacent to the Alexander Palace at Tsarskoye Selo. She often acted as coordinator between the Empress and Rasputin whom she admired. She would survive the Revolution and live to old age in the West.
