I know that today is a remarkable day for the country — a year ago we were commemorating the birth of the USSR as an outcome of the Great October Socialist Revolution of 1917, and I was going to come up with a similar-themed post today as well. But then I stumbled upon these photographs and decided that they are too precious not to be shared. So here’s a dozen of photos of young, strong, sexy Soviet bodies instead.
These images were captured by Aleksandr Rodchenko in 1932 in Moscow, Lefortovo — there were the student quarters at the time, like a university campus where many students spent summers exercising, swimming, sunbathing and enjoying life.
… and faces of some.
