Lions Guard the City: Soviet Postcards Devoted to Lion Sculptures in St.Petersburg

Posted on April 14, 2017 by tim


This is another set of Soviet postcards. Those were published in 1979 and are devoted to numerous lion sculptures of St.Petersburg.  During aristocratic Russian era in late 18th and 19th century there were quite a few of those were erected in St.Petersburg (it was a capital at time), but seems none of them were built during Soviet Era, probably lion wasn't favoured by new regime.

This Lion is guarding a mansion entrance, was made in 1810.

This one was born in the end of 18th century.
