“Enamel hollowware department”.
Check out a photo coverage from a factory in the Vladimir Region which used to produce enamel hollowware but has been reduced to ruins…
Strange sort of enamel factory to have gasmasks and newspapers with articles about Edward Liminov lying around.
There were gas masks everywhere, even in school. In case of nuclear war, caused of course by evil imperialists. It is soviet way of dealing with problems – like radioactive fallout = “give them gas masks and tell them it helps”. Of course, gas masks does not work agains radiation.
All the abandoned places in Russia have gas masks strewn about.
My theory is that the gas masks had something to do with the abandonement.
They even had an old analog word processor in that one photo!
It is a bitter paradox that enamelled country-style steelware cost quite serious money today.
It’s amazing, soviet collapse, collapsed lot of factories in Russia also school & places like this. Nice coverage!
Peace to all the workers who labored here.
These pic remind me of Detroit Ruin
Thank to union
It’s a shame that so much soviet history goes to waste. It would be good for future generations if what remains could be preserved as national heritage. No doubt it’s painful or irrelevant for current generations, but historically it’s important.
