Soviet Era Streetcar

The Saturday Archive Series:

As streetcars in Kiev go, this may be a more recent vintage. I’ve seen some that look much older than this one. My understanding is that a large number of the streetcars in Kiev date from before the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991. And since a good part of the 1980′s were an era of fiscal decline in the USSR, many may date from earlier than 1991.

UPDATE:

One of my Flickr contacts, OLLENA has informed me that this is streetcar was definitely made sometime in the 1960′s. Thanks, OLLENA.

Another contact, vostok71, believes these are Czech made streetcars from the 1980′s Thanks vostok71.
