John- I'm not sure how you mean retro in this context, but these were taken about 14 years ago, with Kodachrome film (slides recently scanned and processed). The weather in St Petersburg was on the edge of being gloomy.
And back then, the Soviet Union probably WAS retro. The 20th century had largely left them behind- except for the construction of military weapons and a few other scientific accomplishments.
