Since 1995, Bob Atchison has been creating interesting Web exhibits and collections, and he has also been responsible for maintaining the Alexander Palace Russian History homepage. The site features a number of specific exhibits that deal with such topics as the Romanovs and Siberia. His most recent creation is this photographic travelogue of St. Petersburg, which was the capital of Imperial Russia in 1900. Atchison had the idea for such a project as he looked over a copy of the Burton Holmes Travelogue for Russia from the period. All told, the travelogue contains 50 photographs, some of which are drawn from this original travelogue, and the remainder of which are drawn from Atchison’s personal collection. The collection is rounded out by a selection of links to other online works and several maps of St. Petersburg which are provided for reference purposes.
