As looked also what the Soviet shops smelled of

So, friends - today there will be an interesting post about the structure of the Soviet shops. I here the other day found several curious pictures of that era, and thought that too it will be interesting to you to look and esteem on them how everything was arranged in these magaza - especially interestingly the fact that it was almost identical on all Union, with rare exception. Fans of the USSR now of course will begin to tell

that all this pictures and the description already from "damned the ninetieth", and they in the cozy personal USSR had everything absolutely differently - but it is the most typical pictures of the Soviet shops. And even in their not worst time - for example, in Stalin years in shops was not also this

So, in today's post - the story about how looked and what the Soviet shops smelled of.

As all this looked outside.

the Soviet grocery stores in the cities can be divided conditionally into two views - the first look was placed on the first floors of residential buildings and was widespread in houses of construction approximately till 1960th years of construction. In the seventies there was other type of shop - separate buildings on a sample of the western supermarkets - they were built in new residential districts and the cities of type of Pripyat.

Both of these types of the Soviet shops made related one - huge showcase windows always were dusty. For the sake of interest look at pictures of the Soviet grocery magaz - absolutely everywhere windows were dusty and dirty. At windows it was possible to see unpretentious drawings of any products - most often they were united in groups on windows. Let's tell, at one window there were drawings of oil and milk in packages, on another - meat, on the third - vegetables (huge beet was always allocated), well and so on. Drawings were or are cut out from something monophonic and pasted on glass, or are applied (thicket) directly on glass with paint. It became so - artists cut out cliches then by means of a sponge applied paint on glass from cardboard.

On glasses of show-windows were pasted, as a rule, alarm system sensors from white slightly transparent plastic. And at back doors of shop (where brought products) blocks of the svetoshumovy alarm system - metal boxes of gray color with oblong glass plafonds froze up, as a rule, - by the way, such pieces can and be seen now on old buildings where at the time of the USSR there were shops.

If shop was in a house, then the backyard of the house was rather impudently and inconsiderately occupied by store workers - in the yard there were always mountains of boxes (wooden, and after multi-colored plastic), there were some cans, the broken barrels, the broken trays from bread, beaten bottles and other similar rolled. However - separate shops sinned with it too, and their "backyards" too quite often acquired dumps.

Backyard. Utility room. Frauds.

let's come in the Soviet shop Now - but we will make it not from an entrance for buyers, and actually from there from where the goods got to shop. As a rule, it got in
