A Russian feel

Whenever I see pictures I like, I drag them into a folder on the desktop of interesting things, and from time to time I am reminded of them. 
Today I came across these photos of Russia 100 years ago, courtesy of fine little day.

I am completely absorbed in them. The landscapes, the buildings, the costumes, the expressions on the faces of the people and the story they tell of the life those people lead. Some of them are shocking (the water carrier with his water in pig skins and the boy shepherd, so young and without shoes). Really a magical find.
