A couple of days of photos: No.3 - Leon Trotsky

This is a photo of Leon Trotsky and his bodyguards in 1919. With the current focus on alleged Russia state murders. Trotsky was murdered of the instruction of Joseph Stalin in 1940. Nothing new in the world.

Lovely Lady with Hat

Isn’t this a great photo?  Not sure if this woman is a bride – no veil – although she does wear a white satin dress.  But the bouquet she carries is very similar to those used for weddings 1915-1925.  14 more words
