POSTCARD, CA 1910, RUSSIA ~~ A nice imitation of medieval age: ABC-book with ancient Cyrillic Russian letters and a boy in the suit of Russian old noble (=boyarin). In 1900-1910 The Romanovs brought a fashion to everything that could remind of the Ruriks, the Tzar dynasty with a 700-year history in Russia; this was caused by several crises and fall of The Romanovs' popularity.
