|1201||1201 was the first car of this type in Kiev.
Depicted here is a train on route 23 along Brest-Litovsky Prospekt,
Svyatoshin-bound, at the Garmatnaya stop.|
|1202||A set piece at the Lukyanovka Depot.
The car is assigned to route 21 "Kontraktovaya Ploschad — Dom Ofitserov",
which existed in that configuration for a few years only.|
|1203||A tram on route 2 is crossing Ploschad Pobedy,
on its way from the railway station to Lvovskaya Ploschad.
Commercial advertisement on trams was an absolute impossibility
during the Soviet era, whereas social advertisement could be
present, albeit rarely.
Here the passengers are reminded about the rules of the road...|
|1204||The terminus of the same route 2, at Lvovskaya Ploschad.
The tram is leaving the loop, bound for the railway station.
On the left is the then brand-new dispatcher's office building.|
|1205||The same route 21 as before stops at
Ploschad Stalina (Evropeyskaya); the tram is about to begin
its descent into Podol.
The "Stakhanov peace watch" mentioned on the front-panel slogan
is difficult to explain nowadays; the tram crew is supposed to be
standing guard, watching for peace, in the memory of Stakhanov,
if that makes any sense at all...|
|1206||Again, the Garmatnaya stop on Brest-Litovsky Prospekt.
Barely visible in the background is a viaduct near the Bolshevik Factory.
Route 18, at the time, left Brest-Litovsky Prospekt near Metro Oktyabrskaya
(Beresteyskaya) and proceeded to Borschagovka along Bulvar Lepse.|
|1212||A rare shot of old route 4
Lvoskaya Ploschad -- Krasnaya (Kontrakovaya) Ploschad.
The car is going down Ulitsa Vorovskogo towards Gogolevskaya.
In the background, one can discern two two-axle KTM-1/KTP-1 trains.|
|1213||A few hundred meters down the same line, at the intersection
with Gogolevskaya. A car on route 2 is going up to Lvovskaya Ploschad;
on the left is another one on route 15, turning from Gogolevskaya into Vorovskogo.|
|1215||Brest-Litovsky Prospekt, route 5.
Branching off to the right as the train goes is a short spur along
Ulitsa Shpaka, which connected this line with the one
running along Ulitsa Parhomenko (Degtyarevskaya), which still exists today.
The days of the trams on the Prospekt are numbered here in this picture from
1982; because of the reconsruction of the thoroughfare, the fate of the tram
line is sealed.|
|1217||A car turns from Zhadanovskogo (Zhilyanskaya)
onto Ploschad Pobedy. This turn still exists today; only
the right turn going in the opposite direction, visible before the tram, is no more.|
|1219||An old picture at the Vokzal (railway station)
loop. Running straight ahead is Ulitsa Kominterna,
with trams literally following one another.
In the background on the right one sees the Pankovschina
neighborhood, unofficially known as Le Quartier Latin of Kiev;
on the horizon, the domes of the St Vladimir Cathedral.|
|1220||Route 17, a predecessor to the modern
speed route 1, which used to serve Yuzhnaya Borschagovka.
Not too much has changed here nowadays, except for the number
of cars that would be in the picure had it been taken today...|
