    Does the featured image of this post dates back to 1940s Russia? I remember I watched a documentary at Mubi about that.

      It is from 1940, but much closer to home!

      This photo is from our own collection and depicts Torbrex. If you’ve been to the Torbrex Inn you may even recognise the cottages.
