I really love looking at vintage photos. Places are so different compared to now. The place you posted looks so peaceful!
I love old photos, too

Sophie, Did you go to Leningrad in 1984? I went in 1987! Corinne recently posted..U is for UAE (A-Z Blogging Challenge)
Yes, to Leningrad and Moscow. It was February, freezing cold, very foreign and very exciting. I haven’t been back since.
it`s not a Nevskij Prospekt, it`s a Krasnoputilovskaja ulitsa (street)
This street is located on the outskirts of town and can not be even Nevsky Prospect in 1984. That’s Nevsky Prospect.http://maps.yandex.ru/?ll=30.376919%2C59.925910&spn=0.022016%2C0.005773&z=16&l=map%2Cpht&ol=pht&oll=30.382044%2C59.924719&oid=img_76829932%3A224655
Sveta and Falcon, Thanks for pointing that out. I must have noted the wrong street name in my photo album. I will change the title.
Looks like the Midwest in the middle of January during the polar vortex … can feel the cold just by looking at it! Ronny recently posted..Top Destinations In Martinique
It was very cold. All those years ago, I still remember.
