About a year ago I posted some photos taken by Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorskii that I found on the Library of Congress website. I was browsing through some more this morning and found some gems, all of them focused on the Russian Empire from 1909 to 1915. Over 2,600 images are part of the Prokudin-Gorskii collection and include people, religious architecture, historical sites, view of villages, and more.  Love these, and hope you do too.
