A look at Russia in color from 1900 to 1915

My last blog post that had pictures of America in color from the early part of the 20th century went down pretty well so I thought I would share pictures I found from the same source of Russia in color right at the beginning of the 20th century.

It is a pity that communism effected Russia on such a drastic scale as it looked like they were well on their way by some of the beautiful buildings shown. One is also reminded of the strong contrast between early developed Russia and early rural Russia.

There are loads more pictures where these came from all of them available online from the Denver Post
