This beautifully composed photograph shows three figures balancing on floating tree trunks on the river Moskva with the seventeenth-century Church of St Nicholas the Wonderworker in the background. The central figure in full Highland dress, flanked by two workmen, is likely to be a member of Lord Granville’s diplomatic mission.
