So long, treasures

Workers, under the watchful eye of armed guards on the roof, pack and load the "Treasures of the Czars" exhibit Thursday. The five-month show at the Florida International Museum in St. Petersburg, which showcased 250-plus treasures from the 304-year Romanov dynasty, ended June 11 after attracting more than 600,000 visitors. The elaborate jewelry, gold-threaded robes and famed Faberge egg will now be shipped to Topeka, Kan.
