3 Color Ghosts of Russian Greatness

Color Ghosts of Russian Greatness

Posted on May 22, 2013 by team


It is known that Prokudin-Gorsky was taking pictures of the battleship “Potemkin” in 1905, but unfortunately those unique photographs were lost together with other original works from photo collection devoted to Sevastopol. The pictures shown in this post give you a chance to imagine how they could look in color.

On the picture above is a squadron battleship “Navarin”, 1902.

    They all seemed so mighty… But when faced against the Japanese battleships and ground howitzers at Port Arthur and Tsushima Straits, they all were worthless and a clear failure… White elephants, too old for the new generation of warships.
