Does anybody know books available in the USA with photography of everyday life of Soviet Union in 60-70-80-90s? I checked amazon.com/exec/obidos/redirect?tag=sovietempire&path=subst/home/home.html search with "soviet", "USSR", "Russia" so if you know such title I probably saw it. Can anybody help with another book titles or adresses of libraries that have picture collections (like NYPL that I also visited).
You might try "Soviet But Not Russian", a look at the many non-Russian peoples of the glorious Union of Socialist Soviet Republics. Nyet Smert!

my old school had a whole series of books on the culture of the soviet countries, published in the 80's. they ahd a lot of photoographs of the everyday lives of the people. i belive the names of the books, were simply the names of the countries
Comrades is a very good book about everyday life in the Soviet Union in the early 1980s, just before Gorbachev began his disastrous reforms. It's based on a BBC television series, so it contains lots and lots of photos of everyday life at the time for ordinary Soviet citizens.
