Soviet Estonia - 1970

Updated: May 17, 2022

This leaflet was published in Tallinn (the Estonian capital) in 1970 and looks briefly at various aspects of Estonian society during the Soviet period. Particularly notable are mentions of the collectivized fisheries, the comprehensive social security system, its extensive public bus network and the short-lived 1918 Commune of Estonian Working-People, among other things. This is all told from the Soviet perspective and also features some contemporary photography related to the republic.
