Norka Village House

Norka Village House - German-Russian Social, Cultural & Heritage History
This village house in Norka, Russia is likely still standing. It was once the home of a German-Russian family in 1983 when this picture was taken. As one can see that electricity is now used by the people and also television antennas are in evidence of that media now being available to the people. The walls of the house were plastered with cow dung mixed with straw, water and mud to make a mixture. The houses are not painted but whitewashed with calcium to maintain the clean appearance. Judging by the appearance in this photo, the streets are not paved. (courtesy: Walter Blume)
