Amazing Color Photos from Early 1900’s Russia

Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorskii

Peasant girls, Russian Empire. Three young women offer berries to visitors to their izba, a traditional wooden house, in a rural area along the Sheksna River, near the town of Kirillov; 1909 Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorskii Collection (Library of Congress).


I have to remind myself that these were taken over 100 years ago. Amazing.
