Cathedral of the Resurrection of Christ, St Petersburg, Russia

In 1961 I was very fortunate to be able to drive unrestricted, and without a guide, through the Soviet Union during the height of the Cold War. Here, in St. Petersburg, then Leningrad, the Cathedral of the Resurrection of Christ, also known as the Church of the Savior on Blood (sic), is seen from the Griboyedov Canal. Although these old Agfacolor slides have faded a great deal since, some of the images have attained an almost hand-tinted look when scanned and the colors restored as best they can be in Photoshop.
