I wanted to share a short blog about Russian history. I’ve found some great historical photos with color added and I’m sharing these below with some comments about each photo. These are unique photos that provide a glimpse of Russian & Soviet life during the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
I hope you enjoy looking at the photos.
