A Log Cabin A World Away



In the Russian village of Izvedovo, in 1910, Sergei Prokudin-Gorskii photographed this woman spinning yarn on the front porch of her log cabin, above. Below is a picture of ironworkers molding artistic castings at the Kasli Iron Works nearby.

That is a very rustic cabin! But what a uniquely shaped spinning wheel that woman is using. Very special photos, Golden West! :o) Happy Week ((HUGS))

When I look at this cabin I cannot help but speculate what it would be like to live through a Russian winter in it.
