Soviet Moscow 1985 - 18 Streetscapes and Postcards

Published in 1985 this packet of 18 colourful postcards show a variety of sights around Moscow during the Soviet period. We have looked at many Soviet vintage photos before, of course, as well as some of Moscow.

These ones are unusually bright and vivid and have a large number of streetscapes which I always find the most interesting.

The picture of Kalinin Prospekt at night is spectacular, while the Marx Prospekt, Komsomol Square, Kalinin Bridge and the shot of the RSFSR Council of Ministers and CMEA buildings are all standouts.
