2nd Time Around?

Russia RU-3034556

Notes: Normally, I keep my unblogged postcards private on Flickr until after I post them.  This one, however, was public, which really made me question whether or not I have posted it before.  I'm pretty sure I haven't but if I have, oh well!  The card shows a scene from Znamenskaya Square in St. Petersburg, Russia in the 1890s.  It was named after the Church of the Sign, but the church was torn down in the 1940s by the Bolsheviks.  The square was renamed Vosstaniya Square, which translates to Uprising Square.
