Here are photos of Moscow 1896 – monuments, buildings, cathedrals, streets, views…
The Red Square
The Petrovsky Palace
The Triumphal Arch
The House of the Governor-General
The Municipal Duma
The Historical Museum
Yes, yes, a lot of nice buildings but the rot of the Tsarist monarchy permeated Russia. In the worker’s districts revolution was brewing. Nicky’s days were numbered.
The masses of Russians went from the frying pan into the fire. The Tsars were benevolent compared to what they got with communism.
And so were the days of millions of Russians who didn’t survive the civil war and the Soviet repression.
Beautiful city, and beautiful photos.
moscow was soo beautiful! would be nice if it were still like that…
Most shocking is the lack of people. The places are so empty.
Fascinating. But my thought also was where are all the people.
is the statue of peter the great already in the finish gulf when these pics were taken
