Caption: Trans-Siberian Railway labourers, 19th-century artwork. Workers clearing trees in a forest during construction of the Trans-Siberian Railway. Engineers are surveying the route. Construction of the main routes of the Trans-Siberian Railway began in 1891 and lasted for most of the 1890s. Additional work completed the railway in 1916, making it the longest railway in the world, stretching over 9000 kilometres across Russia from Moscow to Vladivostok. Artwork from the 13th volume (first period of 1894) of the French popular science weekly 'La Science Illustree'.
