It is an actual pic. It was one of hundreds made by a Russian named Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorskii ( 1863-1944) who did a photographic survey of the Russian Empire with the support of Tsar Nicholas II in the years before the First World War. He used a special camera of his own design that made 3 black and white images in quick succession using red, blue and green filters which were later combined to produce a color image. The entire collection of hundreds of original glass plates was purchased by the U.S. Library of Congress in 1948.
