A Look At Moscow In The Early '90s
America on every corner.
The first McDonald's opened in Russia in January of 1990. It was apparently a really big deal as a Big Mac might have cost a day's salary.
Electronics giants like Sanyo and Canon make their presence known.
Coca-Cola bottle operations in Russia began in 1985.
Here, a sign of Disney's presence in Moscow. Interestingly, around this time in the U.S., a proposal was being made to create a Soviet Union Pavilion in Disney World's Epcot Center. It never happened.
This actually looks like a lot of fun.
Pizza Hut also came to Russia in 1990.
A Camel sign...everyone was smoking. Currently, four in 10 Russians still smoke and a ban was actually recently enacted.
Vendor stalls near a metro entrance.
So much America going on right here.
