Vintage Photos of Russo-Japanese War in 1904-1905
The Russo-Japanese War (8 February 1904 – 5 September 1905) was fought between the Russian Empire and the Empire of Japan over rival imperial ambitions in Manchuria and Korea. Russia sought a warm-water port on the Pacific Ocean for their navy and for maritime trade. Since the end of the First Sino-Japanese War in 1895, negotiations between Russia and Japan proved impractical. Check out the vintage photos of Russo-Japanese war in 1904-1905. The photos were taken by Victor Bulla, son of the famous official photographer of the Russian Tsar Court Karl Bulla.
