[Two Original Photograph Views of Vladivostok].
Ca. 1899. Two gelatin silver prints ca. 10 and 11,5 x 16,5 cm (ca. 4 and 4 ½ x 6 ½ in). One image with ink stamp of "The Gilliams press Syndicate" and old label with type-written text "Panorama of Vladivostok and Harbour" on verso. One image strengthened with paper and with remnants of the old mount on verso. The images are bright and clear, overall a very good pair. Two sharp views of downtown Vladivostok. One is taken looking east, with the Golden Horn Bay and numerous naval and commercial ships on the right, and the conjunction of Svetlanskaya and Aleutskaya Streets on the left. The locomotive moving on the Trans-Siberian Railroad is seen in the foreground, and the busy commercial and residential development of Svetlanskaya Street is in the background, with the recently completed Vladivostok Dormition Cathedral (1899). The smaller image is taken on Svetlanovskaya street and is looking west, to the Vladivostok Railway station and Tiger Sopka (left, in the background); the city wharf is seen on the left. Detailed view of part of Svetlanskaya Street is seen in the foreground.
