1033A standard (but not less valuable) shot at the railway station loop. Note how narrow the front and rear doors are, after the reconstruction. The car does not look nearly as luxurious as on pre-1917 pictures...

1034At route 11; a not immediately recognizable turn at Podol.
[Wolfgang Schreiner, 10.1959]
1035The northern Kontraktovaya Ploschad terminus, route 11, which ran up to Petropavlovskaya Ploschad back then. This spot looks almost the same today.
[Wolfgang Schreiner, 10.1959]
1038At the factory in Germany, in full splendor.

1041The tram goes up to Pechersk. Pedestrians still walk almost freely on Evropeyskaya Ploschad. At the same time, there are six (!) trams and two trolleybuses in the picture. Nowadays, this place is completely devoid of electric mass transit...

1047Making a left turn from Kominterna into Zhilyanskaya. Almost like posing for a photo session, three cars of different generations are following each other: the Pullman, an MTV-82, and a brand-new Tatra T-2.

1051Most probably shortly before tram service on Vladimirskaya was discontinued. Apart from the Pullman, an M1 car, apparently on route 15, is visible. On the left is the Vernadsky Library, next is the red University building; far in the background are the domes of St Sophia. The photo is taken from inside the famous Moroz House; this is more or less what one sees today from the balcony of the Estonian embassy.

1052At the old route 27 from Podol to GES-2; most probably this is the single-track stretch on Elenovskaya Ul.

1053At the northern Kontraktovaya Ploschad terminus, ready to
[Raymond De Groote, Jr., 12.07.1959]
1055Route 6, behind Evbaz (Jewish Market). In the background is the Transsignal factory building; the photographer stands approximately at the spot where the loop of speed tram #3 is nowadays. The photo is taken either in 1959, when this line was moved here from Brest-Litovsky Prospekt, or at the beginning of the 1960s.
