Someone should colorize the photo...what with there apparently being no color photography in the 1980's

It is color film! No one could afford actual colors in soviet russia.

This was taken in the GDR not the USSR

I know. Still in the soviet zone and behind the iron curtain.

Ok, doesn’t make your statement accurate. This was Germany.

I would have thought the inaccurate part of my statement was that colors didn't exist under communism. Seemed clearly a joke to me.

GDR was not communist, It was socialist but ran by a one party state aka the communist party or the SED trying to achieve communism. I don't know much about color picture though
