Vintage photographs of St.Petersburg (it was called Leningrad at that time) in 1924, the year when Lenin died. The pictures are in high resolution, you can click and browse them with arrows in a larger size.

The “Passage” shopping mall.

This is the inside of the “Passage” store.

At that time, there was a temporary liberalization of small business trade in Soviet Union, which was called “NEP” – new economic policy – and many small shops appeared. Many of those small shops would be banned later.

Motor-sledges – cars with skis. “Packard” is the brand name of the cars.

Agitation on the bridge – “Stop fascism! Stop leftist capitalism-social-democracy!”
