Catalogue Note

A wonderful book depicting the growth and development of Moscow, with regard to transport networks (trains, both overground and underground, trams, roads and canals) both in and around Moscow, housing developments, parkland, utilities, hospitals, schools and cinemas. At the end is depicted the projected "Palace of the Soviets", topped by an enormous pointing statue of Lenin, a classic example of Stalinist baroque architecture that never progressed beyond the design stage.
