Russia 1985

I know, another set of photos from the former Soviet Union!

However when they’re this good it’s hard to put them away and these came across the desk here with some delightful smiles.

1985 was, in many ways, a year in which optimisms were raised and the chance of change was everywhere in the air.  The realities of Glasnost and Perestroika were not so apparent at this time with the genie still in the bottle but life for ordinary Russians went on the way it always had and this delightful set of images show a country without any clues to the huge changes only 6 years away.
