dc.identifier.citation Weems, Carrington (photographer). "Capital Place Dvortsovy Column of Alexander First - Russia." (1909) Rice University:
dc.description The Palace Square, also known as Dvortsovaya Ploshchad', with people walking around. The Alexander Column is in the middle and the General Staff Building is on the right. Original resource is a black and white photograph.
dc.description.abstract In 1908, the Rice Institute Board of Trustees sent their newly chosen President, Edgar Odell Lovett, on a world tour seeking out the best aspects of the leading colleges and universities. Dr. and Mrs. Lovett traveled in the company of their secretary, Mr. Carrington Weems, who took these photos to document their travels. They are images of places, more so than people. Dr. and Mrs. Lovett themselves are generally not featured. Each image has an image number that reflects the order in which it was taken on the trip, from number 1 (beginning in Canada and going east around the world) through number 338 (returning to the U.S. through California and ending in Texas), ranging in date from 1908-1909. The names of each image were recorded by Carrington Weems, with the only exception being a county name added in parenthesis when the place name was not present in Weems' original title.
