Petrograd, Russia - February Revolution, 8th-15th March 1917

A very important (and very rare) real photograph postcard showing National militia firing on a Czarist police position (the police were running along the rooftops according to the eyewitness report on the reverse of the card) during the February Revolution, Petrograd, 8th-15th March 1917. The eyewitness reports bullet holes in his gate (and windows smashed in nearby property) and that this card was 'very hard to get hold of' !! Rumours had spread that police had been armed with machine guns and placed in the upper stories of buildings throughout the city. While apparently unfounded, these reports resulted in attacks on individual policemen throughout the city. The photograph was taken by Jewish photographer Jacob Steinberg (1880-1942). Famous for his photographs from the front line during the First World War. Collaborated with magazines (1920s30s). Headed the Petrograd Society of Artistic and Technical Photography. Exhibited three hundred photographs on historical and revolutionary themes at the Academy of Arts (1924). Date: 1917
