The harsh reality of the Russian Revolution at the beginning of the twentieth century has come to life through a series of freshly colored images that show the terrible conditions of the period.
The photos just taken come alive to the images of Vladimir Lenin disguised as factory worker KP Ivanov at the Razliz station in August 1917, and next to his successor, Joseph Stalin, in 1922.
Other impressive shots of colors show the last Russian Czar, Nicholas II, with his family and cutting firewood with his son after the first revolution and visiting the army during World War I in 1916 before he was overthrown.
The executor of the Tsar family, Yakov Yurovsky, also appears in a chilling image along with the February revolution that will take place in 1917.
Revolutionary women and women with former members of the Russian army who hold a plaque that says "Tyranny has collapsed and chains are broken" are also among the detailed images.
The original black and white photographs were carefully colored by the artist Viacheslav Peregudov, from Irkutsk, Russia.

It was painted after his subsequent exile from the Soviet Union by Stalin in 1929.
Lenin disguised himself as a worker, Ivanov, in 1917. The revolutionary leader was made to look like a common worker so that the agents of the provisional government did not recognize him.

Shortly after this photograph was taken, Lenin left Russia to hide in Finland before returning to head the Bolshevik revolution.
