|On Manage Square, in front of Moscow Hotel. On the advert, I'm sure there was some caption "you must be some kind of idiotsky to speed down Prospekt Marx on a motorbike"|

GQ Magazine 25 Years Old
Its 25 years since British men's style magazine "Gentlemen's Quarterly" first hit the news stands in the UK. Originally a quarterly publication, hence the name, GQ is now a successful monthly publication with worldwide readership. What is the relevance here, I hear you ask? Well, apart from the fact that GQ has published a Russian version for a couple of years now, I used to buy GQ back in 1988. I clearly remember some adverts in that first edition which were advertising clothes by "Sisley", mainly because I cut them out and still have them (loser!), which were themed "Moscow Tour". I kept the adverts because I loved the images of Moscow. Here are two of them. They are poor scans - as they were done years ago; but I will dig out the originals and re-scan them.
