Post subject:  Chateau Saint-Cloud

I have found no such topic on any part of this glorius forum, so i figured i ought to start one. As we all may know, Marie Antoinette loved SC claiming that the air there would be good for her children. I have visited the park, but all I feel is sorrow. Such a big part of our queens life, burnt to the ground.

Please feel free to post pictures or expierances here as well :D

as we now see, our queens taste seems to slant towards things more natural as her life goes on.
I can imagine her enjoing these pieces.

You're welcome! I've wanted it for some time now. It makes me want to build my own Saint-Cloud, but I hear they're re-building it :[

I found a lovely photo of the engraving called 'The Triumph of Flora' (how apt!) above the 'de la reine' staircase at Saint-Cloud (it was taken before 1870):

Wow a photograph before 1870? I wonder if they took more photos of the Chateau? Great post Delicate Fleur.
