Destruction on a Moscow street after the Revolution, Russia, December 1905. Artist: Unknown

Destruction on a Moscow street after the Revolution, Russia, December 1905. The Russian Revolution of 1905 broke out after troops fired on protesters trying to deliver a petition to Tsar Nicholas II outside the Winter Palace in St Petersburg on 22 January 1905. 96 were killed according to official estimates, while the oppostion claimed the figure may have been as high as 4000. The events of what came to be known as Bloody Sunday sparked a rash of strikes and demonstrations across the country. The Tsar made some concessions to the revolutionaries by signing the October Manifesto, but the revolution came to a bloody conclusion in December after the Moscow workers embarked on a general strike. The government sent in troops and fierce street fighting resulted in around 1000 deaths, with extensive damage to the city before the Bolsheviks surrendered. In the crackdown after the 1905 uprising, thousands of people were executed and imprisoned. Found in the collection of the Russian State Film and Photo Archive, Krasnogorsk
