I uploaded it to my Google Drive because of its large capacity. I only scanned six rolls because of the funding limit, but I think it is the most interesting six rolls.

Here is the rink But there is a human face, I will get off if someone makes a claim.

Let me help you and us, with a reply: one roll was taken with a half-frame camera, it is visible from scans, where the colleague from Korea was kind to crop the frames into a full-scale photos in the next folder. The most possible and highly used half-frame camera used in the '60-'70-ies in USSR, was Chaika.

Panoramic snapshots were taken with a "Horizont" model camera. It is visible how the depth of field grows in backgrounds.

As for the photos taken with flash, those of the nurses, estimating the sharpness quality and the prospective, a 50 mm lens was used (I'm thinking now about a 58mm lens, but cannot remember well all the photos I've seen yesterday). Some of the lenses on FED rangefinder camera, for example, Industars, not Jupiters on Kiev-III-IV.

Examining the church architectonics, on some panoramic photos, most possibly these ones, or all of them, were taken in Soviet Baltic republics.

One starts thinking and presuming why did it occur to the photographer that all these rolls of film, were left undeveloped: humanly speaking, some of most abrupt life events might have interrupted the activity of the very person.

Thanks v.m. to the colleague from Korea.

Yes, Baltics was also my first impression. Maybe also Poland, but no further.
The big church well visible in some panoramic pictures is a lot like Niguliste in Tallinn, but it is not it. I will try to google for cathedrals in Baltics later, as there is not many possibilities for such a big church in those small countries.
I also tried to find signs and texts in the pictures that could help with locationing, but could not find anything. Soviets were masters in hiding nationalities.

I also took some blowups of cameras in the pictures:

Zarya? 85mm tele?

Zenit E? Jupi-135mm?

Folding camera? No idea what, maybe Iskra, never had one?

FED or Zorki retractable lens?

Personally I found two very interesting pictures.
One has most likely a Vjatka-3 Elektron which is Vespa-copy and made 1973-1979.
The other is the Moskvitch pedal car, also popular in Finland.

And the Horizont pictures with balloons are most likely taken 1st of May.

Best regards,
Juhani

The folding camera is Iskra. You should pick up one.
