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.
