Sometimes we see Japanese drawings with some crazy signs on them, but look how old Russian postcards looked like. Especially those signatures (translated).
The one above for example has a moto: “Not a single victim would WATER gets from us. OSVOD”.
“And mother would forgive me”
“Let the ideas of peace programs reign the world”
Fair of art. Russian Winter. (Wow it’s a normal one).
“Forest of Belovezha”. Also ok.
A TU-154 plane. There were also cigarettes in Russia with the same name. So maybe it’s an ad for both.
“The Socialistic Industry”
One more, Moscow 1980. The year of Summer Olympics in Moscow, ignored by USA team.
HELMET would save you life.
Lottery. Sport Lottery.
“Main Jewelery Trade’ the name of the one and the only Soviet Russian jewelery vendor. Belonged to state.
Get friendly relations with:
Raindrop and Dewdrop
They are our JOY
They are our LIFE.
“Friendly guys”. Yeah he looks really friendish.
VOK. We invite you to join BOOK-LOVERS society.
That one is cool: “Prepare your kid from a childhood for a LIFELONG JOB of PEDESTRIAN. Meaning that he is gonna be pedestrian forever.
“Sack of apples”.
“It’s now 5 year anniversary for Soviet Volunteers of Book-Loving”
Aeroloflot. Soviet airlines. Only Russian airlines at that time.
Life of party member in Kazakhstan. Did I say B… word?
Call 01, tell exactly: What’s being on fire 2. Exact address.
“Ara the bumblebee”. A Magazine for Political Humor.
“First time on stage”
This one is short and crazy: “Use radio!”
“Use obligations as a convenient form of money savings” OK.
No comments on the postcard. In general that’s St. Petersburg’s famous bridges which are open at night so none can cross the city. Though these days they erected a first 24h bridge.
“Duxmobile”. What’s that?
That’s cool too:
“Thanks to blood-donor!”
“Penguin the Emperor”
“A Program of Socialistic States: InterSpace”. Where is it now? Was that something like SDI ?
“Route TAXI”. It’s kind of taxi but it goes only by defined route. So why is it called taxi?
Moscow Subway Scheme. It was smaller that days.
“Cooperation in Space of USSR and France”. France hides something from us?
“Read “Friendly Guys” book!”. Oh yeah we had one “Friendly guy” a little bit before. Is this a whole book on him? A dossier?
Aeroflot Airlines at KOMI ASSR. It’s like saying “Lufthansa” at Alaska.
No comments, but this thing is also from St. Petersburg. St. Petersburg doesn’t use letters.
“Lenin’s Change” ..is coming they mean.
“Guys! Clubs for young Mail-Post-Stamps lovers wait for you!”. Wow.
“A Fox and a Bear”. Preved, isn’t it?
“A Guy-Who-Knows-Nothing on a trip to Sun City”. What can you say on this?
“USSR National Census. Please cooperate with census workers”.
All the inscriptions are exactly translated from Russian, thus this makes them sound even more strange. Or not. If you are Russian.
