Fantastic Photos of the USSR in the 1950s You Haven’t Seen

Well, maybe you have seen some of these photos, however you are more likely to see the majority of them for the first time. All of them are colored and they literally help you dig into that special atmosphere. Amazing feeling of a time journey – 60-70 years into the past.

These photos were taken by Martin Manhoff – an American assistant military attache in the USSR in the period 1952-1954. His photo archive was publicised only in 2016 – mainly thanks to the efforts of a historian and publicist Douglas Smith.
