Petersburg Streets

Description

This subcollection from the William C. Brumfield Collection -- Photographs of Russian Architecture contains detailed views of streets of St. Petersburg. (Note: Imperial palaces, houses of worship, monasteries and panoramas have their respective subcollections.) Founded on the Neva River in 1703, St. Petersburg is the second largest city in Russia and is considered the country's cultural center. The streetscape of St. Petersburg contains a rich array of primarily pre-revolutionary apartment buildings, business centers, grand ducal palaces, educational institutions and other secular structures, as well as churches. The architectural styles generally follow western models, but with local peculiarities and a distinctive urban plan. St. Petersburg is unique in having a comprehensive, rigorous policy of architectural preservation.
