Russian Views page 1 - Moscow and St Petersburg





Russian views are fascinating and always popular. They provide a peep into a world that disappeared with the advent of the Russian Revolution and the end of the Czars. Many of these are from the Underwood series of 1901 and are in excellent condition. I have marked them grade 9 but most are in mint, as new, condition. Please note that this section now comprises TWO pages. Link to the second at the bottom of this one.

 Please also click here for views of the Russo-Japanese War of 1904-5

All views from here are Underwood unless otherwise mentioned.
