Life In Russia Revealed Through Old Colorized Photos From 1900-1965

This unique photo series created by artist Olga Klimbins on Flickr is a valuable insight that shows us how life in Russia used to look like between 1900 and 1965. Russia has a very long, complex and controversial history, especially in the 19th and 20th centuries. These are the times when the Russian dynasty fell and communism paved its way into becoming one of the world most brutal regimes.

Sure, nobody likes communists nowadays, but back then, they had a lot more supporters than you would have guessed. Fear and terror are not the only things which dominated Russia and its people in this time and we will come to realize this very quickly by looking at these old colorized photos.
