Today's Vintage Rusyn Photograph

"The best attack against winter.  Eastern Slavic type oven - Ruské"
From the comprehensive yet intensely Ukrainiophile book Tradície Hmotnej Kultúry Ukrajincov na Slovensku
Ruské is a rather interesting-sounding place insomuch as I think it's a Rusyn ghost town.  It's still there, but not on the maps as an inhabited place, and it falls within the confines of Poloniny National Park.
