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.
Taking a trip on the Trans-Siberia Railway is on my Bucket List.
