Today we travel to the year 1993. The country continues to shake — there is another political crisis, which ends on a Black October and the shooting of the White House from tanks.
In St. Petersburg, one of the tanks not firing, but the heating broke through then quite regularly. This time it happened on the corner of Voznesensky Prospekt and Sadovaya street.
If in 1992 in the city were just appearing outdoor advertising, in 1993 it became, well, a lot. On the corner of Sadovaya and Nevsky has mounted a huge advertising Pepsi, which had been hanging here for quite some time.
And on the corner of Ligovsky and Nevsky hung a hefty advertising showroom "Ford" on the street Commune.
Yes what there to speak — the motor show with some serious cars placed even in the Mikhailovsky Manege!
