ZIL plant

• The factory ZIL

We continue to get acquainted (or rather say goodbye) to the once largest industrial area of ​​Moscow - automobile plant them. Likhachev. To date, the territory remained about a dozen buildings, including a couple of shops. The rest of the building and the shop is likely to remain intact, they will be restored and brought to rent offices or art - space.

Soon the factory ZIL completely become history, and in its place will be an elite area, where they will live 30 thousand people.

Well, ready to go back a few decades ago?

Today we will visit the laboratory building and look at the engineering. Since the need for demolition of these buildings do not have inside still retained the Soviet entourage jobs. The cabinets are neatly arranged kilograms of documentation, on the walls hang Soviet posters and calendars of ten years ago, on the tables of the workers are little old phones on hangers in the wardrobe, as if just yesterday stroked, civil odezha and shape. Almost everywhere running lights, and in the workshops still operate old equipment. You may think that their jobs still come workers and engineers.
