Old Photos: Winter In Moscow In Color

Since my previous post on the subject I’ve found a few more photos of winter in Moscow. Sadly, no Russian bears got into the photographer’s viewfinder, but rest assured, the bears are there, probably in hiding or something.

  • Lovely pics. I had forgotten how so many women – over here as well – wore dresses in the winter back in the day.

    Those kids are so cute all cozy in their furs and warm clothes.  And, as for the clothes on the line in the middle of winter, my mother did that back in the day … the original freeze drying.  It works!

    • I always liked when my mom brought sheets from outside in winter – hard as a rock.I am sure she didn’t feel the same way.
