In 2006, an old photo became a sensation on online Russian photography forums. The photo, dated somewhere between 1903–1909, features an entire regiment from the Imperial Russian Army — around 1,200 soldiers — in astonishingly high resolution.

These are the soldiers of the Kexholm Guard Infantry Regiment stationed in Warsaw during the first decade of the 20th century — before the outbreak of World War I and the Russian Revolution. What’s particularly remarkable about this photo is the level of detail that is visible: facial features, army insignia, even the buttons on the uniforms can be clearly seen.
