Sandro was a passionate collector of naval books and amassed a large library on the subject. Under the name VKAM (Grand Duke Alexander Mikhailovich) he also wrote some himself, including The Navies of Foreign Countries and The Naval Reference Book, the first reference books on foreign fleets in the Russian language.

In 1900 Sandro was promoted to captain of the Rostislav stationed in the Black Sea (his son, born two years later, was named after the ship) describing this as “the dream of my life.” In 1902, now promoted to Rear Admiral, he became Minister of Merchant Marine and the youngest member of the Cabinet. His interest and aptitude for technical innovations, usual for a Grand Duke, had also become  apparent, as had his interest in the growth of commercial shipping. He was strongly in favour of Russian expansion in the Far East and (buoyed up by his own ambitions, both political and monetary) encouraged the Tsar to buy forestry concessions near the Yalu River in Korea. This was the first step toward Russia´s disastrous war with Japan.

“Oh, I don’t know

Even when I’ll see you again

Though I try,

Yes I try

To remember you as the kid I knew

But you seem, yes you seem, oh, like some stranger I met in a dream

And I don’t want to know, what that must mean about what you think of me

Brother, oh, what have we

What have we become?“

YOU SENT IT NOT ME

YOU ARE LITERALLY TORMENTING ME WITH THE MOST STAN TWIN SONG IN THE GALAXY THIS IS UNFORGIVABLE

By Rail And By Sea | Scott Conarroe


By Rail and By Sea is a two-part look at Canada and the United States.  By Rail follows lines of infrastructure that span the vast Anglo-American civilization.  By Sea traces its coastline perimeter.  These geo-cultural features wander through the history, present condition, and future of a Cold War superpower and outpost of the British Empire.  By Rail and By Sea is as informed by wide-eyed wonder as it is critique.
