Series: Family archieves #1

With this photo I start the new series "Family archiev".

I discovered this and other photos in a family photo archiev of my wife's mother under quite usual photos like we all have. I was stunned by them. The man who had taken them should have had a very storng sence for photography (I suppose he wasn't a professional when viewing how the films have been developed and printed. Or he just had no right tools abailable). My wife's mother could hardly remember his full name but confirmed he was an amateur photograher, her uncle. As he died many years ago the most of his photos are lost now. I am now the only holder and owner of a few his works left.

I realize that i have NO COPIRYGHT for them and clearely state that. So I made only a few cosmetic corrections. I just want to share them, because after almost 50 years passed they became a reflection of the past century, and especially of the life in the Soviet Union.

The girl on the left is my wife's mother in the age of 8-9 years (now 53).

    @Thomas Weber: no idea whether it's kolkhoz, but in comparance with your Kingdom it could be called so... 8-)) That was the life.

    they called him Elvis at the accordion. ;-)

    I like that scene, it's so "movie-like", romantic, the pleasures of the hard working people.... was that a kolkhoz farm ?
    you're a good archivist btw. :-)
