Saint Petersburg

Here are some photos of Saint Petersburg. I was happy to visit the cruiser Aurora in the Neva river. I first read about its role in the Russian revolution when I was in high school.

The fourth photo shows a typical street scene in the city. You should be able to translate the sign (СТОП) under the stop lights if you were paying attention to my post from a few weeks ago.


  1. Hello Larry, where do you come from originally?

    Where do your ancestors come from?

    Lovely greetings from Germany
    Liebe Grüße aus Deutschland

    1. Two of my four grandparents were Germans born in Russia. One was Irish and the other's ancestors were mostly from Scotland. My first Canadian ancestor was a Frenchman who arrived in 1650.
