Uzbekistan circa 1900
I clicked from Wit + Delight's pin to Ancient Industries hot water bottles to their blog to Sergei Prokudin-Gorskii's photographs of Uzbekistan from the early 1900s to poking around the Library of Congress for much more. I love you, internet.
p.s. These photos of tiled buildings in Samarkand were not doctored to look Instagramy, they each show a single frame from three-color glass negatives. The real deal.
