The J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles, USA, holds a gelatin silver print from pre-revolutionary Russia, taken by Karl Karlovitz Bulla (1854? - 1929), showing an embroidery lesson. There is a teacher and two assistants, and the girls are working at different levels. The ones nearest to the teacher's desk are working on the more complicated items.
