Photographer's Note

It is railway station Oranienbaum, town located about 40 km from Petersburg on southern shore of Gulf of Finland.
This building was built by architect Miller in 1864 when railway Petersburg-Oranienbaum was opened.
The original name of the town is Oranienbaum, which means "orange tree" in German (in modern German, the word is Orangenbaum). It was initially applied to the palace complex, which had greenhouses for exotic plants.
Its present name honors the scientist, poet and glassblower Mikhail Lomonosov. In 1754, Lomonosov founded a colored-glass factory near Oranienbaum.
