The Imperiia Project: a spatial history of the Russian Empire

Depiction of a horse

This is the only card that includes an animal in the space reserved for ethnographic illustration. Horse farming is not noted specifically as a major economic activity of Samara Province, but this is a quirk of the cards. Horses played a prominent role not only in agricultural life but in the nomadic and semi-nomadic cultures of the steppe.
