    So many great photos here! I really like the Kotelnicheskaya Embankment one with the bicycle and water. The “The construction of an open-hearth shop” photo with the staircase and windows reminds me of the Elvis film “Jailhouse Rock.”

    Of course all photos made according to Soviet guidelines: work is always pleasant and never tiresome, everyone is fit and like dancing, there are no sad faces, no poor people. But anyway, great photos, I like them.
