A little while after I posted my father’s account of a roadtrip he took in 1977 to the USSR, I noticed a lot of the traffic to this site was coming from Russia and the Ukraine. Several people wrote in to say they enjoyed the post and some to make (much appreciated!) corrections.
But the most exciting note came from Olena:
“The photo from Kiev, with house number #21. My father lived exactly in this house in 1930s, 40s and 50s…”
How amazing that she spotted it! It was an image from “Andriivsky Uzviz” street, in the centre of Kiev. Olena also sent me the image of the street and house number 21 as it is now, taken by a friend, Tatiana Markhay.
