    • the soviet army theater (now “Russian army theater”) is between the Dostoevskaya, Seleznyovskaya and Soviet army streets, facing the Suvorovskaya square. The nearest metro station is Dostoevskaya.

  1. The Kalanchevskaya Square was an epicenter of a worker’s uprising in Dec. 1905; a general strike by factory and railway workers supported by SRs and SDs against the authorities; hence, the barricades in the street as seen in the photo.

  2. ah, i remember my grandma telling me about floods of Neglinka river=) thanks, EnglishRussia!

    btw, the photo of “Komsomolskaya Square. 1959.” is not showing much of the square itself. It seems to be taken from the end of today’s Mashi Porivaevoy street, crossing with Kalanchevskaya street, and shows a corner tower of Kazansky station and a railway bridge. The square is behind of this bridge.

  3. Photo – “Chemical protection. Before the World War II, 1940” -WTF??? Second World War was 1939 – 1945. 1940 was second year of II WW!

      • “Chemical protection. Before the World War II, 1940.” – doesn’t matter if they were/ were not involved – the war was on and Russia was partially responsible for it. Learn your facts you Stalin loving bloggers 🙂 On September 1, 1939 the war broke out. Learn some proper history!

  4. I may be mistaken but… there is a picture that says “Red Square, 1960”. But isnt’ there the hotel Rossija that can be seen and whose building only started in 1964 and was finished in 1967 ??
    Anyhow, a nice collection of pictures, I love it !
    Thanks. JG Belgium

  5. For USSR world war 2 started in june 1941.
    In the movie “burnt by te sun” (ytomlonoe solntse) from Nikita Michalkov one can see that even back in he 30ies the exerciced on chemical attacks.
