EDITORS COMMENTS
This evocative photograph captures the bustling activity of Taganrog port on the shores of the Sea of Azov in Russia during the early 1910s. The image is dominated by the impressive silhouette of the Imperial Russian Navy's battleship Ioann Zlatoust, with its distinctive three funnels proudly displayed. The battleship, named after St. John the Baptist, was one of the most powerful warships of the Russian fleet at the time, and its presence in Taganrog reflects the strategic importance of the port city. Surrounding the battleship are a multitude of merchant and naval vessels, engaged in the transportation of goods and supplies. The ships in the foreground are likely to be merchant vessels, their masts and sails creating a mosaic of shapes against the blue-grey sea. The larger, more imposing naval vessels, including a cruiser and a destroyer, can be seen further out in the harbor. The statue of Peter the Great, the founder of the Russian navy and a key figure in the country's maritime history, stands proudly on the far right of the image. The statue, which was erected in 1834, serves as a testament to the historical significance of the port and the role it played in Russia's naval expansion. The photograph offers a fascinating glimpse into the past, providing a snapshot of life in Taganrog during a period of great change and development. The image is a reminder of the rich maritime heritage of Russia and the important role that Taganrog played in the country's naval history.
