A cover from St Petersburg, Russia ...

Thanks Andrey for this nice cover of Nicholas II ;-) The cover was sent on 13 July and took a month's time to reach Singapore.

Nicholas II was the last tsar (or czar or emperor, 1868-1918) of Russia. He was abdicated following the February Revolution of 1917 during which he and his family were imprisoned and executed by the Bolsheviks on the night of 16/17 July 1918.

The stamps were cancelled with special postmark with picture of Palace Bridge and view of Peter and Paul Fortress at the background.
