Kremlin from afar, Moscow, 1969

On the far left is St. Basil's Cathedral. This was taken somewhere on the Rossiya Hotel, perhaps a rooftop observation point? I haven't identified the rest of the buildings in the picture - feel free to chime in.

 

Taken by my grandfather David C. Cook on a visit to Moscow for a meeting of the International Electrotechnical Commission. Development stamp is June, 1969, so perhaps this is May.
