Moscow of 1900-1914 by Sergei Chelnokov

Today we have some previously unpublished vintage photos of Moscow from around 1900 - 1914. The photographs are all by one man - Mr. Sergei Chesnokov. He was not a professional but rather a hobbyist - concentrating on
everyday life of the city. In 1917, after the October revolution, he had to emigrate abroad and then lived in Denmark. Over 1,500 photos were left behind by him, so today lets take a look at a few of them:

They say that these photos were made in 1931 but then lost for a long time, until recently they have surfaced in an archive, already in color. It's obvious they were not originally been made in color but was
colorized, however the timing of this is not known - they might be colorized at the time of making. Anyways a pretty stunning collection of everyday Russian people life in the capital back in 1931!

In July 1941, one month after the Nazi Germany has attacked Soviet State, there was an unusual exhibition on one of the Moscow squares - a  german Junkers Ju 88A-5. It was a scout plane that has got deep into Russian territory and was shot down by the Soviet fighters. The crew of the
German plane was four people which are marked as missing in action in the German archives. Five days later they recovered the plane and brought it to Moscow so people could see a sample of the huge armada approaching the Soviet capital. We can see it too on this photos:
