Adana, Turkey - following the Armenian Massacre of 1909

Adana, Turkey - following the Armenian Massacre of April 1909. A religious-ethnic clash in the city of Adana amidst governmental upheaval, resulted in a series of anti-Armenian pogroms throughout the district. Reports estimated that the massacres in Adana Province resulted in 15, 000 to 30, 000 deaths. Turkish and Armenian revolutionary groups had worked together to secure the restoration of constitutional rule in 1908. On 31 March (or 13 April, by the Western calendar) a military revolt directed against the Committee of Union and Progress seized Istanbul. While the revolt lasted only ten days, it precipitated a massacre of Armenians in the province of Adana that lasted over a month. Date: 1909

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

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
