In Memoriam: Soviet Fox Sign

Today I was very sad to discover that my favorite Soviet sign has vanished. This lovely fox sign, a remnant of a Soviet-era fur studio, used to protrude from my building, but as of recently, it’s been removed (and rather mysteriously I’d say because the storefront has been empty for years, and no work is currently being done there).

In general I’m most interested in pre-Soviet history and remnants, but this is another reminder that Soviet remnants are also disappearing. They are also worth documenting, so this will only motivate me to put more effort into taking picutres of and researching the remants of this era of Lviv’s history.

Below is a photo of my building from 1980 with the fox sign visible
