Old Photographs of Life in Leningrad in the 1920s

Saint Petersburg is the second largest city in Russia, politically incorporated as a federal subject (a federal city). Situated on the Neva River, at the head of the Gulf of Finland on the Baltic Sea, it was named Saint Petersburg in 1703. In 1914, the name was changed from Saint Petersburg to Petrograd, in 1924 to Leningrad, and in 1991 back to Saint Petersburg.

Here are vintage photographs of the life in the second largest city in Russia when it was still named Leningrad in the 1920s.
