  1. The nearest moment of a truly rational, scientific, egalitarian, just society humanity will ever know. The fact is, it was ruined from above (the government after 1929) and not by the people. Look closely at a glimpse of near-Utopia; it’s doubtful it will be repeated.

  2. Now that I have seen the photo of the dancing workers, I suddenly feel the urge to become a Communist and get a job in a steel factory!

    I think the dancing worked!

  3. Many of those photos appear to have been altered, as was so common. Veroshilov appears in a few, and is that Zinoviev at Frunze’s funeral?

    • You’re right. The criminal Stalinist Voroshilov is in several pics. And that is Comrade Zinoviev as well as Comrade Rykov at the funeral. You know your Russian history. As for altered photos, since the dawn of photography to the present day Governments, businesses, and entertainment have conspired to mold reality to their point of views. Nothing new there.

  4. nice pictures, to bad it was never ment to be a beautiful place were people would live a an easy and happy life .
    Maybe the nazi, maybe the british and americans or maybe the top of the cccp governement ruined it

    • Shurely it was ruined by Stalin in the first place.
      with his mass genocides by the red army and the holodomor in eastern europe. and last but not least. Stalins support for shitler 1930-1940

  5. “A group of international defense attaches during celebration of the 10th anniversary of the October Revolution, 1927.” Happy faces 🙂 Like: WTF am I doing here? I could have been sitting in my cozy warm office in Warsaw or Tokio.
