Jim takes a look at these signs produced by Monroe Perdu Studios which depict a dozen or more creative sign applications in Russian.

Great amount of work was done, and set like this one could be very useful for dioramas!
But the text of the announcement doesn't say what time period the publisher was aiming at. And by the style of fonts, artwork and grammar (grammar was somewhat changed after revolution of 1917) I can point to beginning of 20th century (1900-1910). The sign that translated as lottery says nothing about a lottery. Though... that place could sell some lottery tickets...

Nice set. I would also like to see some Russian road signs, as most of the ones for the Eastern Front I run across are in German.
