Russia: Color Photos 1905-1915

I came across this website on rec.travel.europe. Although I really don't have much interest in Russia or photography I thought the photos were wonderful and was amazed at the photographer's method for photographing and creating a color slideshow. These photos are modern recreations from his negatives.

Also hundreds of his photos on this site

How interesting, there was a documentary about Prokudin-Gorsky on the BBC4 digital TV channel the other night:
