A postcard showing decorative rosarium in the Main Botanical Gardens of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR, 1973

Call it St. Petersburg if you like, but I think I’ll always say Leningrad.
Many older people here in Russia still call it Leningrad, but the youth only calls it Peterbsurg, or Peter.
Soviet Union (anyone knows any more details about this one?)

I’ve got this: “Elektronika” sanatorium (health resort) in Kislovodsk, 1970s. No details on the postcard itself.
Some new postcards in my own collection. Grabbed them at a flea market last weekend (200 km away from my town — that’s where the closest flea market is!) I’m especially excited about the top one: Vladimir Zarubin, 1986. Run only 700,000 copies. Compare to his usual runs: five, six million. So it’s considered rare, and I’ve never run across one until now. Very happy indeed!
1) V. Zarubin 1986

3) I. Filippov 1987
4) L. Manilova 1976
