Visiting the St. Petersburg brewing musem

Galina Klyarovskaya, museum's manager, showed me and a couple of other visitors many interesting things, told us a lot about various brewing epochs.
Because of my collection storage method change, I decided rescan all my Soviet caps. If you want to know why I processed storage method read the article on Russian. Hundreds of pictures have been updated!
For a month long I worked on resolving various issues with this resource. Many of the issues demanded attention, but I didn't find time and courage to get rid of. Anyways, I've made some new features, and here is a list of most interesting of them.
Crown caps in Soviet movies
Hi, fellows! For a long time I had idea to write a blog about a subject. Besides a frame from movie, I want to define what exactly cap there could be, based on time period, place of shooting, bottle lables etc. Here we go!
"Spring on Zarechnaya Street", Odessa Film Studio, 1956. The film was shot in Zaparozhye and Odessa (Ukraine). Originally it's black-and-white, colored later. Likely labels on the bottles don't match any real beer brands. At least we can't recognize it. Maybe it's from soda, and maybe it's even just props.
