Photo report from the USSR half a century ago. Soviet life in the lens of John Schulz

222
At the end of the 50s, foreign photographer John Schulz, as part of his European trip, arrived in the Soviet Union. In those years, foreign tourists in our country could be rarely met, and professional photographers from behind the hill were completely rare. That is why the pictures taken by Schultz using high-quality photographic equipment are of particular interest today. And every year historical the value of the frames depicting the everyday life of the USSR of the 1958 model will only grow - after all, memories tend to fade, family photo archives turn yellow, age and become worthless, and these high-quality images still look as if they were shown in a red room just yesterday! But quality is a secondary matter, and the plot always comes to the forefront in this kind of photographs - and here Schultz cannot be blamed for triviality or lack of professionalism in any way. His lens manages to capture a tennis duel between the girls and a rich (apparently manufacturing) feast in the metropolitan restaurant, beach vacationers in inconspicuous swimsuits and an air parade in Tushino, the entourage of the Moscow museum and store shelves with prehistoric TVs sold at very “bite” prices, tram walks in Moscow streets and much more. The selection turned out to be bright, symbolic, and in all respects talented - as you can see firsthand in the blog "Generation Diary"!

      The Leningrad car built by A. Babich in the city of Leningrad in 1956.
      A V-shaped 3,5 liter engine from GAZ-12 (ZIM) with a power of 90 hp is installed on the car.
      The maximum speed of this car was 130 km / h which for 1956 was very decent.

          Yes, this is a flint machine with such an attitude. it is a stone towards foreign cars. because our car is even very good. somewhere, even in front. Yes, the Western auto industry has just steamed up some show-offs and prices in front. Well, have cars become better to ride? no. cars how they drove so they go. here lomatsa more often gasoline more expensive, etc. etc.

          It’s not true in 60 years that I remember there were no potholes in the streets, I remember from childhood, at least where I lived, special brigades removed sand even from the carriageway, and even the sidewalks were perfectly clean. People had no habit of throwing trash under their feet.

            In the photo it is "Moskvich". The AZLK emblem is on the "lattice".
            And I liked the other photo.
            I was born later. But the counters littered with designers of various kinds found. I also didn’t have any at home. The main details were all made of metal. There was even an electrical designer. They themselves assembled simple electric motors and various mechanisms. But any kid could fix the socket himself or hammer a nail.

              my mother was going to buy a large metal constructor for 100 rubles for many years (the average salary in the early 80s). As a result, regularly buying small sets, perhaps my parents collected a designer for me a larger volume than promised. I agree on the account of boyish skills!

                God grant many years to your mother. It’s good that you can still specify the price. You accidentally added one toe. Believe me, 10 rubles at that time is already a condition for buying toys.

            Nostalgia :) I visited friends at 2008 in Russia, walked around the city, stumbled on a barrel with draft kvass (there really are no glass glasses already). In short, I immediately bought a bottle of Coke in the nearest kiosk, poured it into the sewer hatch, and filled with kvass, the eyes of others, including friends - I should have seen: D (especially considering that a Coke bottle - bought for the sake of packaging cost three times more expensive than this kvass), in a week I visited this barrel once 30, but in bottles kvass g.no.

          To dilute a little nostalgia. A couple of excerpts (from a blog intended for conscientious historianshttp: //76letocheredi.blogspot.ru/2011_02_01_archive.html), offhand:

          19.07.65:

          This is due to increased demand for individual

          then on some days its sales increase to 18-20 tons
          a day.
          The regional trade department is taking measures to ensure the uninterrupted trade of bread in the city

                  Savoring petty negativity is not an appeal to the past. This is a careful storage in the soul of everything vile, petty, dirty, and then - a careful regurgitation of the accumulated on others. Shared evil - I have less left.

            Gardener, in 1968 I was 9 years old and my mother sent me to the store, and so in those days it was all in the morning to get milk, it cost 24 kopecks and it was taken apart very quickly, while milk in bottles cost 28 kopecks per They stood there, the bottle was worth 15 kopecks, if there was no queue after dinner, there were a couple of people. Meat, sausage, butter, cheese and other chocolates were on the counter, I don’t want to take it. The concept was like a stone in my mind bite for half a day, because they have been on the shelves for months and I was very surprised (actually still I am surprised) that it turns out that there are soft gingerbreads. I’ll say that I didn’t go naked, I had a natural fur coat, a leather hat with earflaps and lamb fur, all of them went both adults and children. In general, the late sixties, the seventies it was a period of overproduction of shoes , clothes, shops were just littered with them. And all of these bloggers are the same songs from Solzhenitsyn and the company, their task is this, to fool everything from our past. Bad stuff, and good shit to gloss over.

              I agree with you, especially since the country only began to move away from a terrible war. I consider the passage about Solzhenitsyn to be wrong. He loved and worried and fought for Russia. You can argue with the number of prisoners in his works, but everything is correctly described. I have a lot relatives, ordinary people, fell under the Stalin ice rink.

                Read carefully:
                Every little thing in the cell is interesting to me where the dream has gone, and when the peephole does not look, I sneakily study. There, at the top of one wall, there is a small indentation of three bricks, and a blue paper curtain hangs on it. They already managed to answer me: this window, yes! - there is a window in the cell! - and the curtain is anti-air disguise. Tomorrow will be a weak daylight, and in the middle of the day the cutting lamp will be extinguished for several minutes. How much is that! - live in daylight in the afternoon! Still in the cell is a table. On it, in the most prominent place - a kettle, chess, a stack of books. (I still did not know why in the most prominent. It turns out, again, according to the Lubyanka routine: in every minute peering through the peephole, the overseer must make sure that there are no abuses of these gifts of the administration: they do not hammer the wall with a teapot; that no one swallows chess at the risk of paying and cease to be a citizen of the USSR; and no one managed to burn books in an intention to burn the prison. And the prisoners' own glasses were recognized as weapons so dangerous that they can’t even lie on the table at night, the administration takes them until the morning). What a cozy life! - chess, books, spring beds, good mattresses, clean linen. I don’t remember during the whole war that I slept like that. Grated parquet floor. Almost four steps can be taken in a walk from window to door. No, this central political prison is a clean resort. And the shells do not fall ... I remembered either their high clapping over my head, then the growing whistle and the groan of a gap. And how gently the mines whistle. And how everything is shaking from the violin's egg capsules. I remembered the wet slush near Wormdiite, where they had arrested me and where ours were now mud and wet snow, so as not to let the Germans out of the boiler. Damn it, you don’t want me to fight - no need.

                Here he is Solzhenitsyn in all its glory, it was for this purpose that he squeezed off the war, and justified himself by writing his archipelago, charring his homeland abroad and urging her to go to war http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oeUV2u1LHes

                  In order to understand who Solzhenitsyn is to read his biography, very interesting facts are revealed. For example, few people know that he was married to the daughter of the richest landowner of the Kuban. According to the Archipelago ... their family should have been pulverized erased back in the Civil War, later in the 20s, but the riddle, he successfully survived and became an officer. They arrested him because in his letters to a friend on the other front he wrote in almost open text about the need to create a new party and overthrow the Supreme Commander it's in time I’m a war. He didn’t know that there was censorship? The last soldier knew, but the captain of the Red Army did not know, and they didn’t shoot him, one must think that he was already a provocateur and informer. Then you can recall the story with his archive, which helped to take out to the USA the military attache of the American embassy, ​​how they contacted the dissident, who is under the hood of the KGB and the military attache, the question is interesting, but the whole thing is that a couple of years before that the KGB seized the archive from him and from where he got the second archive it’s only known to God. .That turns out that this archipelago is this gentleman Dean wrote from the ceiling. And there was also such a writer, Vladimir Maximov, who was also expelled from the USSR as an anti-Soviet. So after the collapse of the Soviet Union, he said: “If I knew how it would end, I would never fight with the Soviet government ,, and compare what Mr. Solzhenitsyn taught us when he came to Russia in the early 90's.

                  If you understand what is written in this way, then God is your judge. At the very end of the war, he escaped from it, and even in such a way that it was easy to get the highest measure? "I will tear out my eye so that my mother-in-law has a crooked son-in-law." I'm not going to argue, I talked with my older village relatives on this topic back in the Soviet years and about Stalin's times, the reviews were very negative. Malenkov was most praised. Look at the Russian village now or at what is left of it, you will say: "No Stalin is to blame, "and I will say that he is to a great extent too. Since he created such a system in which it became possible for such people as Khrushchev, Gorbachev, Yeltsin, Putin to come to power. Yes, it is from there that their roots are. This allowed, then she is rotten. And the descendants of the Chekists probably threw minuses to me. Thank you. You are not looking for enemies there, Russia is going through bad times, the Russian people are disappearing, and you are all holding on to Stalin. He had a sharp whip. And the fact that he is Georgian and a stranger to us and did not spare us so it's nothing, women still give birth, and give birth less and less. The blind do not see it.

                Passage about Solzhenitsyn I think is not true.


                ... by the time the Archipelago was released, many of the Gulag prisoners were alive and in their right mind. Those who read these revelations were horrified. Among them, one of Solzhenitsyn’s close friends is an ardent anti-Soviet, former Vlasov leader Leonid Samutin. By the way, it was he who Isaevich instructed to store one of the copies of the Archipelago. Here is what Samutin will write later in the book “Do Not Make an Idol”:

                “I am reading his story about the summons to the camp operative in that small camp, which was then in the very heart of Moscow, in the then Kaluga ... those lines. But a completely unexpected ending follows. After the threat of the detective to "drive" to the northern camps, Solzhenitsyn thinks: "It's scary how: winter, blizzards and going to the Arctic. And here I am settled, sleep dry, warm and even underwear. In Moscow, my wife comes to see me, wears programs ... Where to go, why go, if you can stay? ". A story follows about "vexation of the spirit" and ... a literally incomprehensible decision - to buy yourself temporary and relative well-being by direct betrayal ... Frightened by "winter, blizzards, the Arctic", Solzhenitsyn goes to what he himself said: to sign an obligation to inform and selection of the nickname "Vetrov".

                Solzhenitsyn himself is forced to admit that he committed a base and vile act. He even makes a reservation: “That year, I probably would not have been able to stop at this line ... And then they pulled me out on the ministry’s special squad. And so it turned out. I never had to subscribe to“ Vetrov ”again. , brothers, but the Lord defended from snitching.

                But is it? Samutin justly remarks: “We, the old" convicts "broken off by the camps, know for sure: this was impossible! One cannot believe that by giving a subscription to "knock" one could get rid of the opera so easily. And how to get off? Transfer to a privileged position in a special, and even top-secret camp! Who is he telling this to? I declare: such an absurdity was absolutely impossible ... How was the transfer of a prisoner from camp to camp carried out by the so-called "special squad"? This transfer document - a special squad - comes from the Camp Administration and goes to the head of the local camp. But the operative cannot escape in any way, without whose visa he cannot be put into action. He also writes the characterization of the translator. A prisoner with a bad rating cannot be transferred to a privileged camp ... So it turns out that they transferred Solzhenitsyn to a sharashka only because the operative wrote the necessary characterization, gave the go-ahead for transfer. You don’t have to chew anymore to explain what this “good” meant. "

                The old prisoner, the prominent Menshevik M. Yakubovich, echoes Samutin, whose fate, in the Archipelago, is allotted eight pages. In his article "Postscript to the" Archipelago "the then already 90-year-old patriarch of the country of Zeklandia writes:" Solzhenitsyn's assurances that the workers of the "organs", not receiving the promised information from "Vetrov", good-naturedly reconciled with this and, moreover, sent this deceiver to work in a special camp with incomparably better conditions - sheer absurdity.

              Yes, take the very end of the 80s: in stores - well, nothing! In the fridges - well, everything is there! I’m talking about the Primorsky Territory, by the way, and not about the 700th kilometer from Moscow.
              Today, the largest fishing enterprise in Primorye has either 11 or 17 trawlers. In the 70s and 80s, there were about 120 of them, not the largest one! And they did not feed neighboring countries, but the entire USSR! In 1991, with the help of New Zealanders, a refrigerator was built for the NBAMR - today it was demolished in order to ship coal !!! And then the fish was much cheaper than now. I am surprised to find out every time that here, where fish is obtained, it costs more in stores than in Moscow or in St. Petersburg. And the ratio of prices to wages, food and household baskets to earnings - has grown tenfold.
              And what impact did the collapse of the USSR inflict on labor movements around the world? The mafia has again joined their unions, and earnings and benefits are declining more and more. And again - labor migration hits all workers in all countries equally.
              The rich do not care about social tensions in the lower classes: at least bite each other alive - there, below, under payols ...
              Racist is an ally of world capital, that's why they fought with these sentiments in the Civil War.

            Somehow I had to talk with a very elderly woman, this was the year in 1999 in Yalta. She told me about life before the war, she was then 16-17 years old and she remembered everything well. She talked about how well they lived before the war. About how full the shops were, and how happy they were all ... She talked about how the Germans came. How they shot all the Jews near the current cargo port, how all the Communists and Soviet workers and many others hung on the lanterns along the promenade ... How the waves beat and icy corpses swayed and rang like bells ... how they fell, breaking the ropes under the weight of ice and relatives could only then take the executed ... About how the Germans burned the whole forest around the city so that the partisans could not go down the mountains for food ... About how they, after the war, exhausted and starving children, planted seedlings manually again to the very heights of go By spraying with water which is brought. (Then only I understood why all the pines around Yalta are about the same age ...)
            Then, after the war, there was a severe famine and she survived only because her sister married a man who was some important worker and they took her to her in Simferopol. He was supposed to have a bowl of soup for every family member a day ...
            In the end, she admitted that as good as before the war, they had never lived and even by the beginning of the seventies people could not afford what was usual in their daily diet in the pre-war period .....

        Yes, the designers it was a song, I don’t remember how many were there, they put our hands on the right place since childhood, I remember when I was 8 years old I came to a ship model club, so the master knocked out a log from a log, gave a chisel, a hammer, 5 minutes and showed it, or a minting circle, or burn or grind at a woodworking machine, and no one looked that you were 8-9 years old, and showed ahead. So we were taught independence, and now - my son showed me how to putty a wall, I look at it, I look and I think my father would probably have torn me, time is different, they don’t know how to work with their hands, and they are afraid of this, as it seems to me

          And how it came in handy here in America. We wanted to buy a house in a specific area, but everything was not there for our money. And suddenly a rather abandoned house in the right place entered the market, a very poor old woman lived there, she did not have money to support the house, and accordingly he came to a state that is called here handyman's special (for a handy man). She finally decided to sell, because a little more, and there would be nothing to sell. Accordingly, very cheap. My wife refused to believe that all this was being repaired, but I talked her out. With what gratitude I recalled the lessons of labor and circles in the USSR. In general, I put the house in order.
          And here children in school are taught to work with scissors on paper at best. And self-instruction manuals like for blondes: "Please note that a nail screwed in with a screwdriver holds worse than a screw hammered in with a hammer." wassat

        Speaking of Khrushchev and those times ...
        We are rich and you are poor

        In July 1959, US Vice President Richard Nixon flew to Moscow, where, together with Khrushchev, he opened the American National Exhibition in Sokolniki Park. Walking through the exhibit with Khrushchev, Nixon stopped outside a model kitchen of a suburban American home, where a lengthy argument erupted between politicians. According to the photographer Elliott Erwitt, who took the famous photograph of Nixon pointing his finger at Khrushchev, two phrases slipped through the debate that were not included in any of the publications. Nixon said: "We are rich and you are poor. We eat meat, and you eat cabbage!" Khrushchev replied simply: "Fuck you!"

      Don't chat. The girls were "juicy" and the women were mostly plump. I don’t know how in Moscow, they always lived better, and in the regions thinness is a sign of illness. And now everyone is thin and no health. And what they are all the same, without a figure, as they used to call them "picket fence". And before you look - the arms of the legs, right uuuhhh, beauties! I apologize if I offended anyone, because there is such a constitution.

        Well, in America, as a result of the war, it didn’t get worse, but in Europe it was unlikely to be better.

        The Germans conquered Europe in almost 1,5 years, without causing much damage to European factories and plants, in contrast to the rebellious USSR. If only the Europeans did not have to recover from the American bombing in 1944-1945.
        And the United States only fabulously welded into the war, joining it only at the end.

      In the late 09's and early 19's I was just a child. So why should we cry and be sad? Well-fed, healthy. At home, food made from natural products and sweets made from real sugar and chocolate. Although what food is in the summer in the heat, when parents are at work, and a crowd of friends are running around in the yard. You run home, cut off a loaf of bread, on top of it a thick circle of boiled sausage (real! Who says it was made of paper - I'll tear it!) And back into the yard, until in the dark the parents from the balconies start shouting us out. We walked "to the last." They were not afraid of anything. Why be afraid? Pedophiles and maniacs did not exist then as a species.

Homeless people as a class did not exist, you’ve lost your passport, you go to any police department and a month later you didn’t get your passport from the apartments and the article was for parasitism. If you are thumping, then the district police officer, after three drives to a cold drink for a month, sent Bukhara to a narcologist and he wrote with a pure soul a referral to LTP (medical labor dispensary), where there were two ways to quit drinking or work for the benefit of society indefinitely.

      and in spite of everything, thanks to education for everyone, there were physicists and lyricists, soda for three kopecks, confidence in the future, there was no fear that the NATO would fly in and spoil us as Yugoslavia, where every member of the European Union simply had to dump this unfortunate his country is a bomb. because the GREAT COUNTRY ceased to exist, which would not allow this scum.

In Poland, the most fashionable coats were from "ortalion" imported from Italy or France, I also bought it from someone,
    although it was too great, but I was proud of it. So what was my surprise when it turned out that my aunt also in a similar coat "ortalion" arrived. Seeing my surprise, my aunt said: "Do you think that in Russia we have nothing? As you can see, we do."

    Yes, a little zealous little, especially a photo with schoolboys in uniform.
    I went to first grade in a tunic and breeches of officer cloth, chrome boots. For it was simply impossible to buy a uniform, they sewed in a military studio. This is in '55, all the guys whose military fathers went to school dressed in a similar way. Instead of briefcases - a field a bag with all the troubles, even with a curvimeter. Then I remember with my father sold the uniform at the flea market in 58.

    Alas, in '68 (how long ago it was in another life) I was 6 years old, I don’t remember exactly by years, but what Motors1991 already mentioned, I don’t remember in stores at that time that it was empty. On the corner there was a store called "Live Fish" and that in these times it was wild - the fish was always there and really - live, swam in a huge pool and I don't remember queues of wild ones behind it. And my mother often sent to a dairy store - there could be a terrible queue - of 2 people ..., milk in bottles (they were then handed over), triangular bags ... ghee, varenets ... how many then did it taste not the same as in childhood . Fresh vanilla buns with fresh milk are delicious. By the way, in schools it was already later milk and buns were brought free of charge at the big break right from the bakery, still hot ...
    About the clothes ... well, they certainly didn’t go naked, everyone had children’s fur coats and little coats, and they wore hats of fur, rabbit, everything was made of natural - wool, fur (they didn’t even learn how to drive bullshit in European then).
    And the croaks of some senility brought by you is complete nonsense. Batteries, slippers and other crap were ... and without any problems.
    So, do not believe in any "sincere nonsense", it is better to ask your parents ... how they lived then and how they got better now.

      Yes, dear Ekzorsist, the sweetness of your childhood memories cannot be broken, nor crushed by any documentary evidence. The phenomenon is well-known, well-studied, but it is of interest nevertheless not for historiography, but for psychology, for children.
      There is no arguing ...

      As an adult, I still think about this: http://76letocheredi.blogspot.ru/2013_07_01_archive.html

        You are probably still a young gardener, people who lived at that time tell you, and you throw up all the shit, as they say, "you are small and stupid," and by the way the link is invalid. negative

          Dear Roma, it's never too late to learn. I suggest the user’s actions in cases where a link “doesn’t open” (it may be valid, but, you know, sometimes we are embarrassed by excessive complacency).
          Select the link, press the right mouse button, select “Copy”, transfer it to any open file, press the right mouse button again, select “Paste”, press “Enter” - the link will turn blue and ready to use: Ctrl + mouse click. Everything, the link is triggered, opening the search text.

          Sorry that I am in such detail (just in case) in Russian literary, although, believe me, I can do it in your usual style.
          Don’t put it out, you still learn a lot ...

    I remember well after the war. At 47 food cards were canceled. Enormous lines disappeared at 50. There was an abundance of goods in stores, though we couldn’t buy tens of kilograms, and we didn’t have to do this, there were no refrigerators now. My first salary, it was 364 rubles, Stalin's rubles, he worked as a laborer at a construction site, enough for everything, and even for a drink. They lived together, had fun, and if they swore it was not malicious. Yes, it was a good time, not like this hour. Thank you for the photo !!! I looked and somehow it became warmer in my soul. MEANS PEOPLE REMEMBER !!! Good is not forgotten !!!
