Photo chronicle of the development of Atyrau (Guriev) 1917 - 1945

All archival photographs are obtained from open sources on the Internet. All of them were made in the Atyrau region and in the city itself many years ago. Only some pictures were taken near our city, but they perfectly convey the spirit of that time. The archival chronicle has preserved the spirit of that time to this day.
