Gilyaks -- Children
Content: The collection is mentioned in the magazine Bostonia, no. 3(May/June, 1990), p. 53-59. Views of administrative center of Alexandrovsk and Derbinsk on Sakhalin Island.According to William C. Brumfield, "typical views include administartive buildings, churches, local ethnic types, prisoners (some mention crimes, punishments) convicts at work. Photos numbered in no particular order, with English captions, with some corrections by a person (the photographer?) who was present during the photography, and thus knew the subject matter/sites. Four per page of 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" prints (128 total, some on verso). No photographer given. Photos presumably taken around time of Chekhov's visit and composition of his famous expose Journey to Sakhalin (189_). Remarkable materials from one of Russia's most notorious penal colonies. Of exceptional interest, in spite of the fading of some of the prints. The photographs themselves are generally well-executed. Priority for preservation; high quality copy negatives essential."
