604 Narva 02.12.2017, part 2 of 2

These former buildings of workers had English equivalents as their pattern. These were used in one movie too to get the feel of British workers' houses, can't remember the name though. I read it possibly from Wikipedia.




But for me, these houses are depressive and look more like prisons.


When on earth was this built? 1990's?




This strange thing was used for burning trash as I later read from the internet.




Getting into the modern part, a hospital.










A hospital that was built for the 300th year of ruling of Romanoffs in Russia. Thankfully, that happened in this time when some sort of modernism lurked around in the form of art deco.

The interior was superb. These are the nices chairs of that kind I have ever seen. 1930's? 1960's?















Very interesting building. 1970's?


This needs to be restored somehow.




Infamous Kreenholm manufacture.

I recently bought 5 towels made here in 1982, unused! With information papers still there on two of them. Here are these signs. You can see the logo too with capital K and M.


Also note that the first one has the quality sign of CCCP and costs more than the second one. And definitely, it was the nicest towel of them:


Walking tours take place here, that's the legal way to get in. There are or were plans to make the whole complex into a big free time centre / shopping centre / whatever else centre like that.

Since my camera did "good" work to get better and lighter photos, I decided to take a manually set photo which would show what the lightness/darkness level really was at that time:







Yet another gem of the day: soviet-time trash bin! I think the building was a school.

Look towards the hospital again.







I took this because in Tallinn these signs are in Estonian.

This was a bit awkward. It says that (people of) Narva should test for free for HIV and C-hepatitis.


























Yet another gem. That green colour!






The chimes of that church were ringing. That was so loud that I just said "It's worse than the train" and thinking of local inhabitants in the surrounding houses that are in the left as seen in previous photos. How can they live there? The railways were right behind the church.
