Description

Here is the magnificent Winter Palace in St. Petersburg Russia as it stood in the year 1890. Russia was an entirely different world 127 years ago. There were still no automobiles, electricity was still in it's infancy and photography was a relatively new and very exciting invention. For the very wealthy, there were lavish picture books for people to gaze upon... exotic and wonderful far off places around the globe; like the book this delightful 8.5" x 11" illustrated plate came from.Matted, framed and displayed as a galley grouping, these lovely antique photo prints are simply spectacular.

It is situated between the Palace Embankment and the Palace Square adjacent to the site of Peter the Great's original Winter Palace. The present and fourth Winter Palace was built and altered almost continuously between the late 1730s and 1837 when it was severely damaged by fire and immediately rebuilt. The storming of the palace in 1917 became an iconic symbol of the Russian Revolution. The palace was constructed on a monumental scale that was intended to reflect the might and power of Imperial Russia. From the palace, the Tsar and autocrat of all the Russias ruled over 22,400,000 square kilometres (8,600,000 sq mi) (almost 1/6 of the Earth's landmass) and 176.4 million subjects.The Winter Palace was designed by many architects, most notably Bartolomeo Rastrelli, in what came to be known as the Elizabethan Baroque style; the green-and-white palace has the shape of an elongated rectangle. It has been calculated that the palace possesses 1,786 doors, 1,945 windows, 1,500 rooms and 117 staircases. Its principal fa\u00e7ade is 500 ft (150 m) long and 100 ft (30 m) high. The rebuilding of 1837 left the exterior unchanged, but large parts of the interior were redesigned in a variety of tastes and styles, leading the palace to be described as a "19th-century palace inspired by a model in Rococo style.===================================================Check out our other World Travel photo illustrations in this series here:http://www./shop/surrenderdorothy/search?search_query=rotogravure+1890******************************************************View our Vintage Architecture Department here::http://www./shop/surrenderdorothy/search?search_query=architecture====================================================All things Russian are here:http://www./shop/surrenderdorothy/search?search_query=russia====================================================All things Victorian may be viewed here:http://www./shop/surrenderdorothy/search?search_query=victorian====================================================Our shop offers more amazing vintage Black and White prints than you can even imagine; hundreds of choices of every kind!
