Tiles in Details

First I caught the sight of this old soviet tile on the shabby wall. (it celebrates 55 years of October 1917 revolution)
Then I noticed the wall itself, rather outstanding, in a way.
And when at home I googled the place and found out that the wall belongs to "Matrosskaya Tishina" ("Sailor's Silence" if to be precise in translation) prison.

Sometimes it seems to me that we are still in Soviet era.
