I am trying to find out where this picture was taken. The name of the photographer is clearly shown and he must have taken other photographs.

10/9/2013 3:39 AM The name of the photographer is N.S. Mukhin which is a very common and popular Russian surname. It is impossible to find a photo studio which worked 100 years age only by this name. Isn't there a logo on the back of the picture?

10/13/2013 8:28 AM As I read it, the photographer name is I.S. Mukhin (not N.S...)
There is a Russian site, http://www.rusalbom.ru/, that holds out some hope, I am trying to search it now but my Russian is pretty rusty!
