Many of the color pictures taken by Sergei Prokudin-Gorskii were
published in a book in 1980 titled "Photographs for the Tsar"

restored photos taken in the 1910s by Sergei Mikhailovich
Prokudin-Gorsky. They can be found at www.loc.gov/exhibits/empire
Jewish photos I noted in the "ethnic" section were boys
and their teacher in Samarkand, and in the "transportation"
section an 84-year-old named canalman in Chernigov.
