These are illustrations from the book from 1900, 107 years ago, about how did Russian university students looked like. With short word describing each.
For example the guy above is: “Physics student”.
This one is “Student for Doctor”
“Russia student from Academy”
“Student at Law Department, Lawyer”.
“Russian Student from Ukraine”
“Russian Student from Poland. Poland was a part of Russia for some time”.
“Russian Student from South, Armenia or Azerbadzhan”
“Russian Jewish Students”
Did the types of students changed a lot from those old Russian times?
