|The site presents old postcards with views of cities of many countries of the world, the first half of XX century.
Along with the views of cities, many with the views of the different geographic objects and places. Some cards have gone mail, with stamps and addresses. On separate cards there are very interesting messages, for example as in the Arkhangelsk peasants, passing by the monument to Lomonosov, they took their hats and were baptized bowing, honoring the Saint. Address side of the postcards that have passed the mail, we have singled out in a separate section of the stamp.
The years pass, it changed the shape of the world around us. Modern restorers do a lot to restore the original view of the works of men’s hands, and old cards helps us to see and compare the past and the present. For instance the Chapel of the Summer garden in Saint-Petersburg.
Looking at the postcards, despite the lapse of time separates us from those years, comes the understanding of how people lived and what they thought of our compatriots century ago.
