The Bourgeoisie — a Russian Pic-nic

The scene illustrated by this engraving is incidentally mentioned near the close of page 470. It represents a party of burghers, who, with their families, are enjoying a "Russian pic-nic," on a holyday, on one of the islands of the Neva. The "favorite somovar," it will be seen, characteristically occupies a prominent place in this picture of Russian social festivity.
