Northern River Station

Advertisement, inside the Northern River Station

This woman is apparently part of "The Best Show and Entertainment On Board" the cruise ships that float along the Moscow River.

I can only quote from Wally Benjamin:
Before a child of our time finds his way clear to opening a book, his eyes have been exposed to such a blizzard of changing, colorful, conflicting letters that the chances of his penetrating the archaic stillness of the book are slight. Locust swarms of print, which already eclipse the sun of what is taken for intellect of city dwellers, will grow thicker with each succeeding year.
Yeah. He wrote that around 1920.

I feel bad for that woman and all the people who have seen this advertisement. That is not a very flattering picture at all!!
