Beautiful drawings. They have this quality where they look like the places are abou to fall over. (That’s not a jab towards Russia, it’s just the buildings look drawn like they might fall.)
It is weak and inexpressive schedule. The contrast of the pseudo-new and pseudo-old is very weak and cheap.
“Soviet Petersburg?” How about Leningrad, Comrade Admin.?
Piotrograd became Leningrad in 1924. This is 1920. Mistake here is Petersburg instead of Piotrograd, but the old name was commonly used in the 1914-1924 period, so it’s not a heavy mistake.

Awww, me too, Comrade!
