S. M. Prokudin-Gorsky liked to photograph children though each photo cost 10 rubles, it was a huge amount and the photographer was not rich, but he continued to take photos of kids because he liked them (he himself was a father of four).

One of his most famous photos taken in Belozyorsk 1909

    Fabulous pictures; a great window into Russians’ (and others’) lives at the turn of the 20th century.

    About massive stones. I believe this picture is of
    Solovetsky Monastery wall. I’m not sure for 100% but I really recall this picture from my memory.
