Collection of photos from Russia circa 1910, before everything soon changed.
Really captures the diversity.

I had no idea they had such brilliant color back then.

Beautiful indeed. Probably 'better' than the originals (thanks to HDR and Photoshop) but still...

Yes well, it wasn't long before it all went red.

Trying to become a successful Anit-Communist, are you? :D
