Color photographs of Russia from 100 years ago

Go look at these amazing photos on Newsweek.
Between 1907 and 1915, Prodkun-Gorskii rode through even restricted parts of revolutionary Russia in his specially fitted darkroom rail-car, shooting color photos ... by a method of his own invention
Really quite stunning. So used to seeing black-and-white photos of these times, and here it is, the turn of the century in living color.
