If you like Kodachrome, photos of women using tools, and/or old US WWII propaganda, check this out.

The photo captions are in English. The introductory text is in Russian, and Google Translate says it goes like this:

Я часто хожу на сайт вдохновляться цветом Кодахрома. Сайт широко известен своими архивными фотографиями, так что вряд ли он будет для вас открытием. Но мне вот захотелось сделать себе подборку избранного, чтобы под рукой была на одной странице и в хорошем качестве. Может быть вам тоже будет интересно. Все снимки сделаны в 1940-1943 гг. Подписи переводить не стал, потому что плохо умею и боюсь переврать. Но в целом всё итак понятно. Смотрим, впитываем.

I often go to the site inspired color Kodahroma. The site is widely known for its archival photographs, so it is unlikely he will be opening for you. But now I wanted to make a selection chosen to hand was on the same page and in good quality. Perhaps you too would be interested. All images were made in 1940-1943. Signatures transfer did not, because what is bad and I'm afraid I can misquote. But in general, all so clear. Look, we soak.
