A very good c.1920 postcard of the monument to Colonel Franz Edward Ivanovich Todleben at Sevastopol in Russia. Erected in 1909 to commemorate the efforts of Todleben and Admiral Kornilov to defend Sevastopol during the Crimean War 1854-56. It was Todleben’s genius that allowed the town to hold out for so long. He later became Commander in Chief of the Russian Army. The memorial stands today.
