Moscow, USSR

This is a postcard from 1964. The Friendship House was originally built in 1897 for the wealthy Morozov family. After traveling in Spain, the architect fashioned it after the Moorish style incorporating features of a building he saw in Salamanca. The facade is covered in sea shells.

Casa de las Conchas, Salamanca.

The Morozov building is now used to house visiting foreign delegations.
