Gatis this are not digitally remasered photografs. This are made before 1918
by Prokudin-Gorskiy . He pionered colour photografy in prerevolutinary Russia. Working for Nicolas II he travlleed oll over empire documenting
evrydays life in colour. Some of his best pictures ended up in National Congress Library in Washington. It's just amazing that above pics made around 1913-1914.

To be fair about Gatis remark. Original photographs where made in tree versions (using red, blue, green filters ) and then presented in color slide
show using a light-projection system involving the same three filters.
So in order for us to see it as a pics digital process was used also it helped to restore damaged pics.
