This postcard folder was published in the USSR in 1974 and shows some of the sights, institutes and monuments. To me notable cards include the children's hospital, the educational facilities (health and education improved dramatically during the Soviet period), the oldest Siberian Botanical Gardens and the Gorky Cinema.
The cards were meant for a domestic audience and are in Russian. While I could not translate all of the text I was able to translate the short descriptions telling what each is a photo of.
