Found these yesterday: three photographs of Bucharest taken in March 1990, which we visited on a day trip during a skiing holiday in Poiana Brasov. They are not the best (we were as good with a camera back then as we are now) and the weather was gloomy (it actually snowed later in the day). Still, they do rather show how much the city has moved forward over the past 25 years (except Gara de Nord, which looks much the same today).
Things to note:
1. The amount of Oltcits on the streets, alongside the more familiar Dacia. Known colloquially (in our house anyway) as Oldshits, the Oltcit was one of the worst cars ever made.
2. The number of wreaths and wooden crosses at Piata Universitatii, laid in memory of those who died during the revolution. There was not yet a permanent monument.
3. The bloke in the fur hat standing next to the Oltcit in Piata Unirii. Followed us around all day. Note also how the Unirea shopping centre in the background looked before it was covered in advertising hoardings.
