Photographer's Note

Nevsky Prospekt, or the Neva Avenue (Russian: Невский проспект), is the main street in the city of St Petersburg. Planned by Peter the Great as beginning the road to Novgorod and Moscow, the avenue runs from the Admiralty to the Moscow Railway Station and, after making a turn at Vosstaniya Square, to the Alexander Nevsky Lavra.

It was constructing in the first part of XVIII century. In process of construction was making great mistake – near the Vosstaniya Square avenue has a turn.
After it was decided to construct parallel street for correct and these part was called “Old-Nevsky”, but official it’s Nevsky prospect also.
But later new street was reconstructed and now there are Goncharnaya street and Telejnaya street.

Place on the picture is a scene from the window of my mother’s house at the “Old-Nevsky”. Perpendicular street is Ispolkomskaya.
