Images of Old Russia from 1872

Posted on April 5, 2014 by tim

This is a massive (66 pieces) picture set of the scenery, people and well known landmarks of Russia dating from 1872. I like the details and style of these pictures, which seem to me to be scans of old lithographs, probably French made. These are also full size, and I’ve spent quite some time enjoying them. There are also captions below each picture.
