Lenin in the bushes and a beautiful signal post.

Incredible but it’s a fact: the sidewalk has an asphalt ramp for prams. Even today it’s not often when you see it in Moscow.

Irkutsk, 1968

The airport. It seems that it will be here even in hundred years.

A great number of neon signs and stalls.

Another Portion Of Nostalgia 10

All girls wore Bermuda skirts and there were no so many perverts. Strange!

The sign of the bus stop is wonderful! Trolleybus icon is still the same in St. Petersburg today. There was another icon of a tram – letter “T” in a circle.

    This post has been stolen and copied word from word from a famous Russian blogger. Stop stealing stuff!!!

    Many things have changed since then. Like the army: the new defense minister [a civilian] ordered that all soldiers should take a one-hour nap in the afternoon and go home for the weekend.
    Can you imagine this in soviet times ??

  8. maxD says:

    And Putin promoting last week on TV that Arbitol [flu medication with no proven effect] is a good buy.
    And s0cial health-care will now be replaced by commercial care only [meaning no health care for old and poor people in general.] Now USA is more s0cial than Russia!!

  9. The buses “Liaz” still riding in some provincial cities.

    Yeah I must admit that somewhere in the recent history russian women lost their taste of good fashion. Pitty… as the girl of picture 10 (I think) proves. Perhaps there is some hope that in 30 or 40 years russian women will get theirs fashion taste back. Hopefully I will be around to see it ;) (and than to die an happy man ;) )

    Don’t be such a cry baby. I love this post. Girl in black next to granny kinda looks like someone I know. I’m not sure because I cannot get the picture to full size to actually see much of it. If that can be fixed, I would appreciate it.
    Thank You.
