Ask First - Rossiya Hotel restaurant, Moscow, 1969

    Newer Older

    Taken from the restaurant of the Rossija Hotel, newly opened two years earlier. In the background St. Basil's Cathedral is just left of center.

    Taken by my grandfather David C. Cook on a visit to Moscow for a meeting of the International Electrotechnical Commission. Development stamp is June, 1969, so perhaps this is May.

    Follow this link for more photos of Moscow by my grandfather. And here photos by my grandfather from other cities around the world.

      Ah, the Rossiya -- I was there in 1986. Fish for breakfast, fish for lunch, and fish for dinner!

      I didn't notice... I was too busy flirting with our Intourist guide.
