    Nice pics, cool to see Moscow at the time of v serious communist repression, the red terror as it is properly called. Wonder how many of ppl we could see on the photos actually suffered the gruesome fate and were ruthlessly persecuted by NKWD etc. Actually, it’s a pity that ordinary ppl would suffer so much because their leader was a delusional sadist and the whole brass was not better. Peace to the good Russians and a big, fat di.ck right up the rectum to all commies!

    The coolest slogan is: “Long live 32th of October!”
    Guess Orwell is rofl-ing in his grave.

    Interesting that in this collection of photos from the ’30s & ’40s we have sovietmoscow1-23.jpg, which very obviously isn’t from the ’30s or ’40s. Wish we knew how that one got in the pile!

    What a wonderful post. I enjoyed looking at all of these fascinating old photographs, thanks.

    Strange what you chose to translate from the photos…

    Somebody chose to frame the two photographs of lines. I wonder why.

      I wondered about that myself, probably some child did that to them. It looks like something a child would do anyway.

        Just cropping photo to make more visually appealing. These maybe 1st print. In final print those parts no longer there.

    Photo near the bottom on page two, proves that Russia invented the current craze of “Planking.”

    the seventh picture on the last page is quite ironic. A large PEACE! sign, and rows of tanks at a parade

    1937…those happy people in the photoes do not know yet what a horrible fate waits them when Stalin will unleash his repressions on them…So many of them will perish forever in GULAGs.
