Wow some great photos there - thanks for posting. I have an oriinalof a magazine (American) printed at the time. There is a report (14 pages) about life in the King's (Monkut's - of King and I fame) palace made by an American who stayed at the palace for several months as a Royal guest. It contains some wood-block prints, but is mainly text. There is much mention of the king and his love for his hildren, but nothing about Anna (no surprise there!). I have it in a safe waiting to be shipped here with some other stuff I left in storage long while back - when I get it, I will try and scan it in and post it. It's pretty well written.

Hang around....as I've some extraordinary rare and hard-to-find photos from this era {mid to late nineteenth century}. Quite worthy to view, if you're interested in this type of thing. Even more obscure and rare photography is in my presence from the 1920's through the 1950's - I just have to find leisure to post them. Spreading the wealth for all to enjoy.
