  1. Its always great to see the differences between the Soviet Union (Which are a lot more difficult to find due to the cold war) and the USA during the 50s and 60s. Thanks englishrussia!

  2. Interesting pictures. Hope that couple in 1937 made it through the purges and the war. Overall, would rather have lived in the USA during any of those times.
