Some photos of an old, still green Moscow. Taken approximately in the 1950s you can see how things were going then¬†on this virtual tour of Moscow’s past. Let’s see! The first photo shows a Taxi company’s parking lot.

And here it is continued with taxis being repaired and checked.

And this is a public bus station.

Yaroslavl highway. Look – no cars!

Leninski ave. Not much cars too.

Tverskaia street with a lot of greens, totally missing this now.

This big building on the left is now a State Duma or Parliament and no green trees now around!
