Soviet Union Magazine

This is the successor publication to USSR in Construction.  They are published from the last known address of the 1949 run of USSR in Construction, 8 Moskvina, Moscow 9.  More or less the same dimensions, these have the full colour covers (obviously) and black and white interiors.  These are no longer printed with the foggy rotogravure of the older magazine, but still have that retouched and improved look of Soviet photography from the ’40s.  Soviet Union was, in its turn, replaced with Soviet Life, which persisted up until 1991.
