The picture shows part of the facade of one of the classic residential buildings of the Soviet Union. Such houses — with mosaic tiles on concrete panels and relief balconies — were built in the 70s and 80s of the last century. In this photo you can see traces of two eras — the Soviet Union (before 1992) and modern Russia (after 1992). Relief balconies, mosaic tiles, and a thermometer in the window (it was usually a kitchen window) have remained since the Soviet Union. Satellite dishes and, of course, plastic windows have already appeared in modern Russia. Nowadays, almost all the balconies of this house are glazed, and, in truth, this has had a bad effect on the appearance of the entire building.

The photo was taken during a small snowfall, and the original color image looks almost exactly the same.

Katav-Ivanovsk, Southern Ural, Russia.
