Re: Former glory: a royal waitingroom at the railway station
Gorgeous! But also a reminder of the inequities involved in travelling as a regular citizen versus travelling as a royal...
Grand! Thanks for sharing!
The (present) Dutch royals are not too fond of travelling by train - alas - but may be these present times and different insights in safe transport which doesn't polute as much as planes (...) might lead to a change in attitude
In royal residence The Hague there's a lovely restored royal waitingroom which was frequently used when awaiting the arrival of a visiting Head of State as well as for own use in Wilhelmina & Juliana's days.
The station is called Hollands Spoor and I like to add some photos from the special site provided by the City Council.
