6 Soviet food advertising

Soviet food advertising

  I suggest you to move to the times when advertising was not as tricky and annoying as it is today – the times when there was no such thing as a "target audience" and the key message
was worded simply and clearly: "Demand it everywhere!" Find below the exhibits of the Jurassic period marketing from the Rybinsk Museum of Soviet food advertising...

People protest by the walls of the US Embassy in Moscow in July 1958 They were talking about American invasion of Lebanon. Lebanon was living through a civil war. It was an echo of the Suez crisis and Egypt, hostile to Lebanon. There was a rather complicated political structure in
Lebanon, when the country's president was a Christian focused at the West, and the prime minister was a Muslim focused at solidarity to Arab countries. It resulted in the beginning of a civil war in Lebanon, and Lebanese President asked the US for help.

2 Caucasus Black Sea coast in 1983

Caucasus Black Sea coast in 1983

  A set of cards released by the Ministry of Communications of the USSR in 1983 is dedicated to the region that used to have a generalized "resort" name at the time – the Caucasus Black Sea coast. Towns, villages and resorts from Anapa to Batumi administratively related to different areas, regions and republics, but for holidaymakers it was just the Black Sea coast. Visitors were both those who went "to the seaside" after getting a "whatever they had" ticket and those who traveled exclusively to the Caucasian coast. There were, of course, the adherents of the Crimea as well. These two regions replaced Turkey and
Egypt for Soviet citizens (unfortunately, there was no alternative to Thailand in the USSR, and our fellow citizens discovered the delights of winter beach holiday only in the 90th). Apart from vacations in the Crimea and the Caucasus, there was "the land of evergreen tomatoes" – Baltics with Jurmala. There will be more publications about the Crimea and the Baltic states, but now, to celebrate the beginning of summer, please welcome the postcards of the Caucasian Black Sea coast. Notes are original. Photos by V. Panov 1. View of the Cape Pitsunda (photo by R. Ozersky)
