Summary

  • This photograph is from Izyskaniia reki Zei v 1907-1909 gg. (Investigations of the Zeya River in 1907-1909), a unique integrated collection of documentary photographs that presents a vivid picture of the state of the Amur region up to 1909. The album was prepared in 1909-10 by the mechanical engineer Vladimir I. Fedorov (1876-1956) on the instructions of the waterways administration of the Amur basin. Its 100 photographs show natural scenes, indigenous peoples, settlers, river transport, and Russian surveyors at work. The photographs are captioned. The Zeya River is one of the most important tributaries of the Amur River. It rises in the Stanovoy range in the Russian Far East and runs southward and slightly to the west for 1,242 kilometers before joining the Amur near Blagoveshchensk. The album is held by the Amur Oblast Museum of Regional History and Folklife in Blagoveshchensk. It was digitized for the Meeting of Frontiers digital library project in the early 2000s.

  • -  Благовещенск - административный, военный, торговый и промышленный центр Амурской области. Основан в 1856 г. Особенно быстро город развивался в третье десятилетие своего существования благодаря развитию золотопромышленности в области и усилению колонизации Зейско-Буреинской равнины. Благовещенск превратился в один из наиболее крупных речных портов Приамурья. Владельцы золотопромышленных компаний, как правило, имели в собственности несколько пассажирско-грузовых пароходов для обеспечения работы приисков, находившихся в верховьях рек Зеи, Селемджи, Нимана и других. В 1907 г. по рекам Амурского бассейна плавало 190 пароходов, 10 моторных судов и 275 барж. Грузооборот благовещенской пристани по рекам Амуру и Зее достиг 10 269 088 пудов, не считая сплавляемого леса.
