The walls of the past



There aren't that many wall murals left in Latvia from a few decades back, because now they are occupied by advertisements. In Soviet times the walls were mainly used for social advertising, work stimulating propaganda slogans or decorative paintings only.

I wish there were more such walls left, despite the propaganda content they are very positive :)

Positive and nice, specially when they contain beautiful and elaborated images.
