A line for water, 1890. You can study history by what people would stand in lines in Moscow for. Most photographs picturing those lines were taken by tourists. In the 30s, it was lines into cafeterias and the Mausoleum; the 80s were marked by
lines for clothes; in the 90s people would wait in lines to McDonalds; and in 1998 it was banks and exchange offices which were in high demand. It's good to know that today people stand in lines to get into a museum or airport.
