A nice set of vintage photographs that reveals what Russia looked like before 1915. These images from the past are from the Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorskii Collection, which includes photographs taken by the scientist and photographer Prokudin-Gorskii, between 1905 and 1915. In 1948, this collection was purchased by The Library of Congress in Washington.
