In Comma, International Journal on Archives, 2002, No. 3-4, is a very interesting article 'The Destiny of the Bulla Dynasty's Photographic Collection' by Viktoria Zanozina.

Some examples of the records at the Central State Film, Photo and Audio Archives of St. Petersburg (TsGAKFFD SPb):

... Karl Bulla took many photographs of the last Russian emperor, Nicholas II, and his family in St. Petersburg and its surroundings. The coronation of Nicholas II in 1896 is documented in detail ...

... Images of the military include daily life of the army, celebrations of anniversaries of units and regiments, as well as various parades and inspections. Between 1904 and 1914, Karl Bulla took photographs of almost all ships of the Imperial Navy including its battleships, destroyers, frigates, yachts, motor launches, and boats ...

... Transportation history comes alive in the Bulla collection. The earliest images, made by Karl Bulla in 1899, help us to imagine the look of rail stations, ... Especially interesting are photographs of the salons in the emperor's train, including the study of Nicholas II, his dining room, and drawing room ...

They have digitalized many of the Bulla photographs since 2000 and are continuing the process.

I am not sure if this is similar to Yale's program and wish to enquire of access for researchers.
