Lada

 

An iconic token of the former Soviet world can still be found trundling through the streets of Tashkent, Volgograd, Minsk and Baku to name but few. 

The Lada is to the former USSR what the Trabant was to the GDR. These compact cars grew ever popular amongst the population and could be seen from Kaliningrad in the West as far as Vladivostok in the East. 

With the fall of the Iron Curtain and the breakup of the Soviet Union, the Lada decreased in popularity with the availability of flashier brands now possible to purchase thanks to the fall of Communism. 

Nevertheless, these relics of an era now gone still roam the lands of the post Soviet space with their unmistakable engine groans audible from a great distance.

*This collection will be continuously updated as great joy is had in shooting these noisy, colourful little buggers.
