Old photos of Moscow
« on: November 13, 2014, 03:58:10 AM »
I came across these photos on the Discover Russia Facebook page. They're thought to date from the late 19th or early 20th centuries.

It's interesting to see the Kremlin towers and Voskresensky Gate rendered white, and also the corner tower and Nikolskiye / Vladimirskye Gates of the Kitay-gorod in Lubyanka Square (second last photo, now demolished).
