Portrait of Mary Blumfeld on her 100-years old birthday celebration

This photo telling the story about celebration of 100 years anniversary of Mary. Maria was born in the days of Imperial Russia, lived in the USSR, and now she lives nowadays. Really curiosity for everything new and a love for life - that’s what you can see while personal communication with her. Maria was one of the first pioneers of Soviet Union. That is why for her 100-th birthday every guests puts on a pioneer’s red tie. Maria said: “Everybody praise me, telling about exploits and achievements. But I think, I didn’t do something extraordinary. I just lived.”
