American Red Cross - Miscellaneous - American Red Cross in North Russia. A street corner in Archangel showing hygienic conditions which made work of American Red Cross so important and far reaching. Street and house are built on an old swamp, which has never been drained. Only sewers are rough ditches underneath sidwalks, which frequently break under weight of unwary pedestrian who is projected into sewer ditch beneath. Mud in roads is so deep that it is impossible to do any trucking with automobiles on side streets. Main street is paved so poorly trucking is very difficult. Street car runs over six mile route, up main street of city. Fare is sixty kopecks (nominally 35 cents) for each of three "fare stages" and has to be paid in postage stamps

American Red Cross - Vehicles - American Red Cross in North Russia. Typicial street vehicle used by Red Cross officers as method of transportation in practically all their work about town, waiting for its Red Cross passenger outside Hotel Troitski. Carts are made very light in weight and the shafts are so attached that it is easy for horse to pull it out of swamp and mud. Harness allows horses great freedom of movement, and yet it can be easily and perfectly controlled by driver. Essential part of harness is enormous yoke. Horses are small but very tough and they are very well cared for
