464. Radiostation du Soviet de Moscou. Chabolovka, 53
The famous Shabolovka Radio Tower is shown in this vintage postcard. The tower, built in 1922, is 150 meter high and built from a series of stacked steel hyperboloids. Originally it was designed to reach 350 meters (surpassing Eiffel Tower) but a shortage of steel forced to reduce its height.
