The Unseen USSR: Everyday life

As I have previously noted, I have a modest collection of photos and ephemera from the former USSR that I enjoy sharing via this platform. The images below are from a collection of photographs that I purchased from a seller in Lithuania several years ago. Many of them appear to date from the early 1970s to the mid-1980s.

The above photo captures a candid scene in a field. I used an online tool to colorize this image, and I think it turned out incredibly well.

The picture above appears to be from a nationalities celebration. It was found in a batch of photos of schoolchildren in Young Pioneers outfits.

Classroom instruction in a Soviet school. The pin on the instructor’s blouse appears to be a Young Pioneers or Komsomol badge.
