An image from a series of beautiful and rare views of St. Petersburg. This idyllic scene depicts bustling pedestrian activity and grand Russian architecture. Interesting, this peaceful scene was published in France around the time of the Crimean War. Most of the scenes included military troops, perhaps alluding to the upcoming turmoil between the Imperial Russia and Great Britain. With or without these historical overtones, the prints offer a lovely view of Russia during the mid nineteenth century. Titles in Cyrillic and French. $1,200
