This time we want to show you some forgotten and not really forgotten places in the Vologda Region.
However, on the way there you will come across places which are no less curious… and forgotten. Like this. Is it a store?
Those places are not that easy to get to. Look at this ‘road’ for example.
So, here it is. Village Ploskoye. In 2002, its population was… 2 people!
This star on one of the houses means that during WWII there lived a family which head joined the front and never came back.
Children, if such lived there, moved to cities leaving their mother alone in this home.
When she died, they buried her right there in the churchyard. They boarded the house up but it didn’t save it from a plunder.
Some of the homes are still rather liveable. Hunters and fishermen leave their equipment there in order not to drag it along.
‘Dear Tatyana Ivanovna!
We congratulate you on the New Year of 1998. We wish that this New Year you spend with your family.
Stay healthy and patient!
Tolya and Edick
Apparently, this is the Tatyana Ivanovna and her children. By the way, to make a photo, they had to go the the photo shop which was 150 kilometers away.
Attics tell you a lot about the family which lived in the house.
In this storage there are home-made skis, a quern, a spinning wheel… but sometimes, in old houses you may find things of unknown to you purpose.
