A Secret Look at Leningrad Street Views Through a Rare 1950s Soviet Photo Book
During one of my recent book scavenges, I’ve come across a fascinating photo book published in the USSR in 1957, an anniversary of some sort celebrating the city of Leningrad’s 250th birthday. The hefty book (340 pages) contains hundreds of black-and-white photographs of street scenes, grand architecture, monuments and parks. Because of its limited run, the photographs in the book have hardly been seen by anyone, including probably current residents of today’s Saint Petersburg.
