Nice, another good exhibit of pre-WW1 photography is the Prokudin-Gorskii collection at the Library of Congress.

Damn, my first double post faux par. I searched, I really did. If only the original poster had put the word "Russia" somewhere in the text...

Well, that was a tough one, Jimbob. You linked to the index page, found on a different website than the original post which was the home page that contained the photos. Shit happens.

A pre-WW I was in both posts, not the title, just trying to point that out. Feel the search is not working right or you have to be dead on, in finding it:)

However, Alex Gridenko's site is worth checking out for a,sightly different ake on this. He's done some commercial-quality restorations, well up to the standard of those at the Library of Congress site, including images I've not see elsewhere. I especially like this one just called Head Study: a studio shot of a red-haired woman on a chaise.
