Photographer's Note

The famed Potemkin Steps In Odessa, on the edge of the Black Sea. Apparently named after an incident involving the battleship Potemkin, in which the crew mutinied and came ashore at this spot, where a skirmish with troops loyal to the Czar took place. A movie was also made based on this event, entitled 'The Battleship Potemkin,' some of which was filmed on these steps, including the scene with a baby carriage bouncing down the steps during a battle (a scene that has been copied in other movies, including 'The Untouchables.')
