This shows Railroad Station No. 1, Red Square (on the left), many boat landings along the Volga (at the bottom), 9th of January Square (the light colored square between the railyard and the river--to the right of the big smoke plume), Pavlov's House (of the two long buildings in the lower left of 9 January Square, it is the one on the right), and the Flour Mill (sometimes called the Grist Mill or Steam Mill) between Pavlov's House and the river--about 1/4 of the distance to the river.

The L-shaped (╔) house is 15% in from the right, 30% up from the bottom.

The train station's terminal building is 25% in from the left, 10% down from the top; the Barmalay sculpture is in the circular fountain across the open plaza there.
