Handwriting of a Soviet Five Grader In the 1950s

Handwriting of a Soviet Five Grader In the 1950s

Just a couple of days ago we published some images and a story about the subject of calligraphy in Soviet schools. Handwriting of Soviet elementary graders was amazingly neat (compared to the handwriting of present-day schoolchildren). Here’s another example of handwriting that belonged to some Victor Menshikov, a five-grader of the 1950s. Looks really impressive, doesn’t it?

Some people do not understand all those disputes about the present and the past and think it’s ridiculous to say that things were truly better then. But just look at this. That’s another example of something simple, just someone’s handwriting, but we know there’s much more about it, much more indeed…

  1. I took a Russian language course a few years ago that taught cursive writing. Had to give up after a couple of months because of job conflicts, but when I retire I’m going to have a serious go at it again.
