    The first one is from a really distant part of Russia (from the main cities)
    The rest of the photos are not even from Russia.

    >> color cameras didn’t come out till at least 1960?s. <>It was probably this Miethe-Bermpohl camera which Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorskii later used to make his now-celebrated color photographs of Russia before the 1917 revolution. <<
