    Background: Scenes of building activity in a little village outside Moscow-old wooden houses with their ornate elevations in stark contrast with sober, matter-of-fact modern blocks of flats.
    The building industry is flourishing in the Soviet Union and scores of new houses are going up, daily. Prefabricated homes are getting more and more popular.
    Within the Seven-Year Plan the area south-west of Moscow, near the Lenin Hills where this village is situated, is to be incorporated in a big housing scheme. The old is slowly giving way to the new, and by 1960 this district will have residential buildings cowering about two square kilometres, 50 schools, nurseries, cinemas and other facilities.
