About this Item
- Views of Kiev.
- This early 20th-century postcard album shows some of the major sites of Kiev, capital of present-day Ukraine. The album was produced by the shop of Stefan Vasilyevich Kul'zhenko, an important printer and publisher, not only in Kiev but for the whole of the Russian Empire. The album shows the major sites of Kiev as they appeared in the late-19th century and early 20th century. This was a time of rapid industrialization in the Russian Empire, when Kiev grew into a major trade and transport center. Many of the city's notable architectural monuments and educational and cultural institutions date from this period. Sites shown in the album include cathedrals and churches, the Dnieper River, the opera house, and memorials to two national heroes: Saint Vladimir the Great (circa 956--1015), the grand prince of Kiev who embraced Christianity, and Bohdan Khmelnytsky (circa 1594--1657), a Cossack hetman who is generally regarded as a founder of Ukraine. Many of the structures shown in these views were destroyed in World War II, making the album a valuable document for the history of the city.
- Kulʹz︠h︡enko, S. V. (Stefan Vasylʹovych), 1836-1906 Compiler.
