St. Ludger

Sumptuous color photos of pre-Bolshevik Revolution Russia depict glorious landscapes and an incredible diversity of people in this splashy Smithsonian piece by Natasha Geiling.

An intriguing story of ancient grains, community, entrepreneurship, and craftsmanship is charmingly told through a series of gorgeous slides, and sandwiched in the middle is a wonderful video interview with the owner of Hayden Flour.  Lengthy but so worth it.
