Life In Russia

“A Grocer’s Shop, Moscow: Just before closing – the staff taking a parting cup of tea.”

From The Graphic newspaper, published May 16th, 1874. On the back of the clipping you can learn about the latest in music…“As the public interest concerning all things Russian is still unabated, “Cramer’s Standard Russian Songs” will certainly make their mark now, if ever.”

You could also read about new novels, including “Under the Limes” by Christina North…and catch up on all the new members of the House of Commons!

The entire issue is available to view in the British Newspaper Archive, but it does require a subscription.
