Installation of a high voltage power transmission line pole near Moscow (128 m). Another Shukhov project which is similar to the project of Shukhov tower. No crane is used for installation. Upper sections are lifted from the part of the tower already installed.
Shukhow tower and Eiffel tower
Initial project was 350 m in height (right). But it required 2200 tons of steel. Young Soviet Russia did not have enough metal. Thus Shukhov had to decrease height to 150 m (left). Lenin personally ordered to provide 240 tons of high quality German Ruhr steel from military department stocks.
