    Ah the good old days. When if you didn’t like your boss you just reported him to the KGB as a capitalist

    The photos from the “other” german tourists from the 40s were more dramatic

    Communist Imperialism? you say, Avrid, don’t be silly. How could a Socialist Wonderland possibly be imperialist?

    i have been living here in St. Petersburg for 4 years and i will be back home to Malaysia this July. I love this city very much and it’s so sad to leave this beautiful historical city with many magnificent architectures. Let’s have some tea or coffee whoever interested. I love making new friends.. Have a great weekend! =)

    Thoroughly enjoyed the photos. A lot were of late forties and early fifties. All buildings, streets and trees show no damage, yet a little time before there was a three year siege and bombardment. The parts shown here then were not damaged by the war or had they all been repaired in the short time since the Germans left? Surely there must have been enormous destruction for 3 years of bombardment and bombimg?!
