A lot of Russian around…..

here in 1968.

  

Now a Warsaw Pact tank track painted in peaceful lilac lie around for the curious visitor.    Art out-stallation and great recycling. Or is it a mulberry colour?   Historically more accurate, Soviet Russia had their Soviet satellite armies invaded.

I was in Prague in 2008 forty years after this intervention or a ‘fraternal assistance against anti-social forces’ as the Soviets described it, occurred

The Russians are onside now and will never invade anyone ever again.  Ever!  Eh!

Woops!

A decade before World War 2 when neither Russia nor Soviet Russia had a bear hug around here, Prague might have looked a little bit like this photo below.  Illusion courtesy of a vintage car.

A blink in cosmic time, but 70 or so years forward and the automobile motif and indeed the city itself has a new look.

Beautiful!  Czech beer adds a few pounds.

Oh! the car.

a Maserati.

One of the more sober models from the 1899 Bologna company with the Trident insignia.  Now under the holding company Fiat Chrysler Netherlands, previously Fiat S p A, and before that Fiat Group (yawn!)
