Prokudin-Gorskii was a genius, his photos quality is incredible considering they were made in 1911

>In March 1918 activists of the Young Bukharan Movement (Yeni Bukharlylar) informed the Bolsheviks that the Bukharans were ready for the revolution and that the people were awaiting liberation. The Red Army marched to the gates of Bukhara and demanded that the emir surrender the city to the Young Bukharans. As Russian sources report, the emir responded by killing the Bolshevik delegation, along with several hundred Russian supporters of the Bolsheviks in Bukhara and the surrounding territories. The majority of Bukharans did not support an invasion and the ill-equipped and ill-disciplined Bolshevik army fled back to the Soviet stronghold at Tashkent.

Kek, shame it all went to shit regardless

Russian Jews were always like this. Now there are almost no Russian Jews because they got fucked by tsar and the communists.

Posting for the first time on my new home board!

I have a huge thing for super-old color photos. I think they make people uncomfortable because normies don't like thinking of anything before the 1960s as being real or tangible, preferring to think of history as some kind of fairy tale.

It's pretty hard to tell which ones are real and which ones are recolored when you look for them, though.

Remember how sharp black and white photos are?

These were done the same way but with 3 exposures at once for red/green/blue. You get a really sharp image, but with some abrasion like you see on the camel.
