Woah! What a super fancy place! That carriage and well, the rest of the building, are so intricately decorated. I love that you were able to include the carriage and the ceiling in this shot!

Sharon said...

Wow, gorgeous coach and it looks like a beautiful building to house them.

Lowell said...

I remember this place! It is utterly magnificent. Really looks more like a palace than a place to store things.

They don't build carriages the way they used to JM...have been catching up on posts I missed when in Sydney, excellent 'Graffiti reflections' and the image 'Fog on River' is totally magic! The railway station is an unbelievable building and the 'After the Storms' image is a joy. Fabulous work!!

I've never seen such detail in a carriage! I can see why there's a museum - and what a museum!!

What a contrast this elaborate coach and room is to the abandoned building in the post below!

What's this about a Trojan in comments?

I have still to go to the carriage museum in Versailles and though the royal stables are pretty nice ;-) they are NOTHING compared with this beautiful ceiling...

VP said...

Wonderful, and so well kept!

Halcyon said...

Beautiful -- easy to imagine the "fairy-tale" princess who should be riding in this. (My inner child is telling herself a story ;>)

RedPat said...

I don't know if there are still people alive who could still make such a carriage or create such a ceiling!

Joan Elizabeth said...

I remember you have shown this place before ... how could I forget it ... it is absolutely amazing. This coach is less "gold" but still very ornate and beautiful ... and look at the ceiling.

Rob and Mandy said...

My, what a fancy garage!

brattcat said...

the coach is a springboard to so many imagined stories.

Jarart said...

Gorgeous room and coach.

jeannette said...

Not only the coach exudes royalty but also where the carriages stand! Thanks for sharing JM!

Uma lindíssima foto!
Já nem me lembrava que o tecto era tão grande beleza!
Adoro velhos coches! E até devia dizer que adoro todos os meios de locomoção antigos;o)
