Russian Restaurant and Its Owner. 100 Years Ago.

Russian Restaurant and Its Owner. 100 Years Ago.

How did a restaurant in Russia looked around hundred years ago. What type of gentlemen frequented the place and what did the interiors look like? Is it something similar to newly made, often kitschy eateries after almost eighty years of Soviet people eating in state-owned Stolovaias (all restaurants in USSR belonged to the Soviet state)? If you are curious about these things (like I am) then you have a chance to take a look at “Luna-park”. This is what a restaurant in Moscow was called at the beginning of the 20th century, before the Revolution, and this guy in the photo is its owner, as you probably has guessed already.

    @Vladimir Popov,
    Yeah, it’s not like the Bolsheviks actually did anything like that, right?? Those gulags, lies! All lies!!!

    Hahahahahahaha! Wearing your party pin still?

  2. Mate, after 20 years in Australia, I am not sure what to say. But your perception of history is somewhat one sided 🙂
