"Borjomi" is a Georgian mineral water. It had a sort of cult status in the Soviet Union and then when Georgia seceded from the former Soviet state it became an article of import into Russia, which was even banned in some periods of modern Russian history. However, a hundred years ago this was a
Russian source and a Russian water which was already in demand competing with famous French and other European mineral waters. These colored Prokudin-Gorsky photographs show how the business was going at times on the source. They are clickable and enlargable to a wider size.
