A building in Eastern Europe

This is a picture of a building in Eastern Europe which was probably taken in the 1960s. I don’t know the significance of it; it may be an important building or just an old house, but there are posters outside which may indicate its purpose. Can you identify it or it’s location ?

General Rules of Challenges

Your aim is to try to find information about the picture using only the visual clues in the picture. In order to help, the scan is a higher resolution than that normally used on Found-Film, and there is a magnifier set up to give you a more detailed look- just hold the mouse cursor over any part of the picture to try. The type of challenge is shown above the picture and you can answer with a google maps link in a comment.

There is no prize for this other than the joy of knowing you got it right and the fun of doing it, but if it proves popular I might publish an honour board every month

  1. The writing on the posters is difficult to read, not least because the image is reversed left-to-right (the vehicles apparently driving on the left-hand side of the road is the giveaway).
    The “MO” logo on the phone boxes may be a clue to someone.
