Group of 6 Photos of the Russian Legation at Tokyo by Maruki Riyo et al
Interesting group of photos showing the Russian embassy in Japan. One photo shows the face of the main legation building and is hand-coloured. Probably taken by Kusakabe Kimbei. Two photos by Maruki Riyo show the building from another angle along with an outer building and garden area. The other three photos show the interior and a painting of Nicholas II can be seen on the left wall in one of them. The three interior photos have stamps reading, 'Musee de Photographie. G. Woltz & Cie. Sofia, Rue Legue No. 10' on the rear. All c1890-1900.
Four photos measure approx. 26 x 20cm. The two Maruki photos measure 27 x 21cm.
Five of the six are in very good condition. One of the Maruki photos has staining that affects the photo. Both Maruki photos have staining on the rear. All are mounted on card. Otherwise very good.
