Some of you might know about boston.com's photo blog "The Big Picture". It's updated regularly with photos from around the world, focusing on current events. It's pretty amazing. The newest entry contains photographs taken in Russia between 1909 and 1912.
These pictures are amazing. They look like they were taken 5 minutes ago with a digital camera and someone has just uploaded them onto the internet. 100 years doesn't seem like a very long time when you see these.
