Pics from the archive (17)

Street scene outside the peasant market in Moscow.
Taken Tuesday 2nd April 1985.

The people on the far right are examining local classifieds posted on the exterior wall of the market - a kind of analogue Craigslist and what in the pre-Glasnost USSR was one of the few forms of petit-bourgeois capitalism tolerated in the Soviet capital...though the peasant market itself was entrepreneurial on a small scale. (I bought a wooden cochino in there which currently sits on top of my bookshelf downstairs.)
