RAR shop

This is an old shop of RAR (Rīgas autoelektroaparātu rūpnīca) - Riga autoelectromachinery factory on Klusā iela in Riga. Today the company still somehow exists, perhaps cos it belongs to Russians and works mainly for Russia, so it might be the reason why they don't need a local shop anymore.

For safe Riga

This is a strange late 1980s/early 1990s mural on Tallinas street in Riga. It says "Riga" at the top but it's a social ad for police. It says: "in case of emergency, call..." and "install anti-theft system on your cars".

Just a plate and tatty mural - that's all what is left from culture house Draudziba (Friendship) in Sarkandaugava, Riga.
