Relics of Czar Hold Interest of Russian Tourists
By Universal Service. jrgARKSOE-SELOE. May 7.—A •Idy stream of wide-eyed Russian JKjsts is today filing past the iyTple vable on which the Czar Signed his abdication ten years ago. This unpretentious reminder of th© past has just been placed on exhibition in the Alexander Palace.
It was in the Czar’s private car 09 It stood at the Pschoff station rut-off from Petrograd by the raging revolution. Upon It Nicholls signed with a firm hand the docu
ment which was really the death
warrant of! himself and his family.
The private car. which stood intact for a long time as s. museum piece has been put back on the railway service as an ordinary dining car on which any traveler who has the price may indulge in a meal. This was done because of the shortage of cars for present day traffic.
Though Tsarskoe-Seloe has been re-named Detskoe-Seloe (meaning Children’s Village because of the number of children's homes there) the populace still designates it by th© old name. Alexander Palace in pre-revolutionary times was usually occupied by the Czar and his family during the spring months. It was built by Catherine the Great in 1796.
