This children’s film strip was made in 1950 to show the kids how the subway works.
Film strip for the kids of preschool age”
Moscow is the capital of our fatherland.
Buses, trams and trolleybuses run along the wide streets.
And deep underground under Moscow streets and houses the subway trains rush along.
This remarkable underground was built at the suggestion of comrade Stalin.
New and new tracks are being laid by subway builders.
They work day and night deep underground. They cleave the ground hard as stone.
And take this ground out in trolleys.
Drive long corridors – tunnels.
The most beautiful marble stones are used to decorate the subway. These stones are sent from Urals, the Caucasus, Crimea – from all the Soviet Union.
In Moscow streets and squares beautiful buildings were constructed with a big red letter “M” on the top – this is a subway entrance.
Right from the street we enter a marble hall and head to the ticket office.
There is a staircase in front of us. We stepped on the steps and the staircase began to move.
