This is how a typical clean-up day looked like. Very modest — rubber boots, comfortable trousers and sweatshirts.

A typical form of clothing for the Russian winter (most in the photo) is a winter jacket with a faux fur collar and a shapeless hat with earflaps.

Another example of clothing for the cold season. A very popular plaid coat (on the left) was wanted by everyone in the 70s.

Photos of the participants of the demonstration on November 7! Everyone is in solemn, festive clothes. This is how it looked like what was considered the best among the youth of the 70-80's.

Another group of young girls and boys during an event. Most likely, it's just a general gathering for the guitar, but the clothes smell of longing. The girl's raincoat in the center was considered very fashionable in those days.

The summer fashion of those times was distinguished by panama hats of indeterminate shape. A girl in a light fashionable shirt with sunglasses stands out from the total mass in the photo.

Fashionable guys at the recreation center. They also wore the best there. At that time, flared trousers (on the left) and Soviet sneakers (also on the left) and unreal coloring polo shirts (on the right) were very fashionable.

On the table, all the most valuable items are displayed with labels and front sides forward. We look at what the students are bragging about: a terrible receiver, empty bottles of imported port and a pack of cigarettes…

Picnic. This photo is not as old as the previous ones. This is indicated by the imported swimsuit on the girl who is standing.
