This app allows you to view and search a collection of color photos of pre-revolutionary Russia in the Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorskii Collection of color photographic surveys of the vast Russian Empire made between ca. 1905 and 1915 at the Library of Congress and in the public domain. In the Main pivot (tab), tap a photo thumbnail to see in the Photo Pivot a larger image accompanied by a description and an option on the lower app bar to download the jpeg file. While viewing the image if you tap the Share icon in the lower app bar, you will be able to share the photo via email. To view a slide show (manual, not automatic), simply tap the 'Slide Show' Pivot. While viewing the slide show, you, again, may share an image via email or download it to your Pictures folder. To search the entire collection for a word or a phrase (not a collection of words), simply enter the search text in the text box and press the Search Button Enjoy the collection. It is a wonderful collection and a window on times past. A full description of the collection may be seen at http://www.loc.gov/pictures/collection/prok/.
