1935. Triumphal Square before expansion of Garden Ring. Joseph Stalin's master plan of Moscow (1935) provided for expansion of Garden Ring to at least 30-40 meter width, and demolition of buildings set at the ends of Garden Ring boulevards to create wide open squares. Grand stalinist buildings, envisioned on all the ring, where initially planned only for major squares like Kursk Rail Terminal Square and Triumphal Square. However, one end-of-boulevard block survives, precisely on the Triumphal Square, atop the six-lane tunnel. The same plan required removal of tram tracks in line with Moscow Metro construction. In fact, removal of tram tracks proceeded well in advance of Metro construction; by 1938, tram remained only in southern and south-eastern segments of the Garden Ring (this segment was closed in 1961):

1929. "N" trailer №1186 (constructed in 1909 at Kolomna Plant) at single-track tramline on the old Crimean Bridge, tram route "B":

1930, Crimean Rampart Street. KM motor tramcar №2089 (constructed in 1930 at Kolomna Plant) at the tram route "B" known as "Bukashka" ("Beetle" or "Bug"). It's interesting that before mass production of four-axle KP trailers, another KM motor tramcar was used as trailer for KM/KM tram train:

1934. KM motor tramcar №2177 (constructed in 1932 at Kolomna Plant) at Crimean Rampart Street, tram route "B":

1930-1936, Old Crimean Bridge. The steel bridge, built in 1872-1873 by Amand Struve to a design by V. Speyer, featured two 64-meter truss boxes, supported by the central pillar. Traffic moved inside the truss, which was congested and unsafe. Tram companies issued a rule that only one tram can be on a bridge at a time, to prevent traffic deadlocks:

oldmos

May 25, 1936. Removing of old Crimean Bridge on fifty meters downstream Moscow-River to make site for the construction of the new bridge. During Stalin's reconstruction of Moscow, every bridge in the downtown was either rebuilt or scheduled for demolition. The Crimean Bridge was slated to be replaced in 1935. The old bridge had to operate until the substitute was completed, because the Soviet capital could not afford interruption of service along the Garden Ring. Between May 21 and May 26, 1936, the old bridge was moved fifty meters from its site on temporary pillars. For the first time in Soviet history a 4000-ton, 128-meter structure was relocated successfully. To restore tram operation via old bridge, new passages were built. Tram operation on the routes "B", №42 and №47 was restored just three days:

1936, Triumphal Gate before its demolition. The arch was dismantled in 1936 as part of Joseph Stalin's reconstruction of downtown Moscow. Ivan Vitali's sculptures were then put on exhibit at an architectural museum on the grounds of the former Donskoy Monastery. After the Second World War there were plans to rebuild the structure in front of the Belarus Rail Terminal. The current Triumphal Gate was built to Joseph Bové's original designs in 1966-1968 in the middle of Kutuzov Avenue, close to the Victory Park:
