Rare Transport Aircraft VM-T Atlant

With the advent of a space-rocket transport system Energy - Buran it became necessary to transport certain large components to the Baikonur Cosmodrome. The Ministry of Mechanical Engineering held a meeting on this issue.

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.

1 Production of Traditional Highlanders Felt Cloaks in Dagestan, Russia

Production of Traditional Highlanders Felt Cloaks in Dagestan, Russia

Two mountains of sheep's wool loomed behind a craftswoman like wings. With her strong, work-worn hands, she strung long strands to comb them and burst into thin fibers. Her helpers, like the legendary Amazons, stretched
wooden bows. There is no doubt, the dark silhouette on the floor was a not yet made felt cloak. In the village named Rahata there is the only factory making felt cloaks in Russia, which was opened in 1925.

2 Production of mammoth tusk in Siberia

Production of mammoth tusk in Siberia

About 10 thousand years ago, Northern Siberia and Yakutia were inhabited by long-haired giants called mammoths. The now extinct genus of mammals suffered from increased temperatures at the end of the last ice age, which resulted in flooding and reducing their habitat. The animals
were trapped on isolated islands without the slightest chance of returning to the mainland. Some populations trapped on these land areas in the East and in the North of Siberia remained there for some more time, and became extinct around 3,700 years ago.
