I'm looking into the eyes of the steamship crew members and wondering how their lives were changed by the events of the following decades. How many survived past WW1, past the Revolution, past the Civil War, past Stalinization, past WW2? Would the captain, standing on the left, be killed by the crew? Join the Whites? Join the Reds? Flee the country? Die in a gulag? Would the cook, standing right, be able to remain above the violence of those years? Or would he take part, or become a victim of it? Which of the bearded sailors died peacefully in their beds? What did Orthodoxy mean to them? What did the Tsar, or Lenin, or Stalin mean to them?

So many important questions, to which we will never have the answers...

So the BBC gallery is just a small taste of a massive archive (2606 images) at the Library of Congress.

If someone can explain this to me, I would be very appreciative.  I am very intrigued by this picture:
