USSR, 1953

Last year I had to explain to my class (of uni students, i.e.: young adults) what the USSR was, and some of its social and environmental implications. Wow. The generation gap makes me feel old, and I'm not yet 40!

Here are some lovely pictures from Soviet Russia in the early 50s - they were some of the first to be seen outside Russia in a decade. My family had escaped emigrated by then.
