I agree, great photos.

But, why does everyone look so happy?

Hard to imagine the hell they are going to go through in the next 40 years...

Ah, those were the good old days except for the Pogroms. My family left before the Pogroms really got underway, and the only photos I have of them are in the brown sepia tones.

These photos are fantastic and show a way of life that still exists in some of the further recesses of the old Czar and Soviet Empires.

I see that burquas haven’t change and that women still suffer under them.

This one in particular caught my imagination - this young man would not have remembered the 1905 revolution but he would have been in his late teens during the Bolshevik one if he hadn't been snapped up for the Russian army in the meantime. He would have seen the starvation in the 30's, the Terror, and would have been a middle-aged man when the Germans came over the border in 1941. He'd have gone, of course, plucked from the Urals to the front, and if he survived he'd have seen Sputnik and in the 70's when the U.S. left Vietnam, a Soviet Union triumphant as it hadn't been since 1945. He'd have seen the decay of the 80's and if he were lucky the fall of the world he knew in 1991.

That's really quite a lifetime if in fact he were spared to live it. The odds aren't very good given what happened to his people, but if he did, what a life.

The quality of these photos are amazing, its too bad others didn't use this technique to take more color pictures long ago.

Remarkable. The colors look as though the pictures are of recent vintage.

I didn’t realize that color photos that good were being made in the early 1900s.

Beautiful, but heartrending to think how soon it was all about to be turned upside down.

If only that horrible war had been avoided. . .
