These photographs are fantastic. I'm a huge fan of your blog... there's always something beautiful, inspirational, or significant.
I understand that at the time this was the most extravagant and expensive estate built. Also, one time they had a party and gave as party favors uncut diamonds and rubies. The gems were hidden in sand, and the guests were given little shovels and pails (I forget what they were made of) to dig for them.
