Street names change, the streets themselves change, but the general "shell" of the city remains unchanged - today we will turn our historical gaze to the photos of Kiev in the middle of the last century.

Historical photographs are always interesting, because you can see familiar or even native places on them as you did not find them because you were not born, or as you remember them from childhood. Today, Kiev, an ancient city that has experienced (and is still experiencing) a stormy and eventful fate, has fallen into the "historical lens". Let's see what Kiev was like in the middle of the last century.
