  1. There’s a deep respect for the others on each pic…
    @Ivana Benderova: if you don’t like so much red… i don’t know what you want to see on old russian pictures…
    Really, sometimes the anger (quite ever without any sense) against the old URSS… makes me sick… come on, we’re on 2010, supossely we’re more civilizated!!!
    Big hug from Argentina (by the way a country without any comunist culture or past).
    Keep on your pleasuring job!!!

    • although ivanna might be just a kid as her LOL suggests, she might be civilized enough to imply that she knows that, under certain circumstances, your eyes appear red on photos, yes, it might be the case

    • I really don’t understand your sentiments toward what you call “the Red”.
      I live in a socialistic country, and for me it is daily humiliation.
      Anyway, these pictures are great. I have a lot of the kind in “the Soviet Photo” magazines. Modern photographers really sold their souls to the digital devil…

    • Oh come on, give Ivana a break. Ivana’s tongue must have surely been in cheek as humourously intended remark was made! Even I considered it clever.

  2. Amazing photos ! Especially the first one where the chick reads two punch cards and one card is upside down ! Obviously the shot is staged, but they still should use a blonde !

  3. I shudder when I see computer punch cards. This was how computers were operated into the 1980’s. Relatively simple programs required hundreds to many thousands of cards. When operating card punching typewriter, one bad keystroke would cause whole of program to fail, and finding culprit card was like needle in haystack hunt! And ultimate horror was to drop the cards causing disorder. Ugh!

  4. The USSR (CCCP) for all it’s faults was the most progressive, egalitarian society (minus the Stalin era) of the 20th century.

  5. While most people in the 1960s US would never want to trade places with somebody from the 1960s USSR, there’s allot of working class people in the 2010s US that would gladly trade their 3rd world gang infested slum for a role in the 1960s USSR.
