  1. Olga’s work is a huge improvement over colorizations of ten years ago. She keeps the focus of the photo and she has a light touch. Most impressive.

  2. The clothes of the women are really incredible. I know that many russians at that time were dirt poor while others were very rich even by modern standards. But many Russians even today are still poor but even the richest women don’t wear such incredible beautiful dresses anymore.
