[Late 19 cent.] The upper terrace

Nikolai Zharkikh

Zharkikh N. I. Bakhchisarai Assumption…

General view of the upper terrace of the Assumption Monastery in Bakhchisarai. Photo from the book by E. Markov "Crimean Essays" [Markov E. L. Sketches of Crimea. – St. Petersburg.: M.O.Wolf, 1902].

I date the whole series of photos placed in Markov's book in 1902, by the end of the 19th century – more precisely, by time between 1896 (the construction of the church of St. Innocent of Irkutsk, on the next photo) and 1901, when a wooden gallery at the Assumption Church was already dismantled (photo 1901; at this photo it is still in place).
