Description

A view of Khreshchatyk street from the Tsarska square - Place Royale (early twentieth century). On the right one can see cabs waiting for passengers near the Yevropeiska hotel; in the middle, there is an early built tram. Though one can see electric posts between them, which are to indicate the electrification of the tram, the latter’s construction is more in line with early versions of the horse and steam tram.
