    Free enterprise before the revolution, notice production in factories.

    heart-warming photos – Makes me wonder who destroyed the most old architecture: the Nazi attacks in 1941, or post-war “developers?”

      There was a massive remodeling done under Moscow city boss L. Kaganovich (under Stalin’s directions). Lots of old buildings were razed in this time (the early 1930s).
