Default Stalingrad Photographs

Stalingrad Photographs

I've seen a lot of threads on this forum sharing photos of Stalingrad but most of these threads just show pictures of place's in maps of Red Orchestra 2. This thread is going to be a collection of all Stalingrad Photos I can get my hands on. This post will be updated whenever I find new photos or someone gives me new photos. The thread will be in sections with spoilers for different parts of the city. I will also add information about each photograph (If I have any or if anyone gives me any).
Note most of the Information I get about these photos is from TodSky/Ernst Hoffmann.

Also note that this thread will only have photos of Stalingrad during the Battle or shortly after. No before the battle photographs.

The Barrikady Gun Factory
Spoiler!


The Dzerhezinski Tractor Factory
Spoiler!


Dom Pavlova
Spoiler!


Fallen Fighters Square
Spoiler!


Stalingrad Grain Elevator
Spoiler!
Spoiler!


The Krasny Oktyabr (Red October) Factory
Spoiler!


Stalingrad Railway Station
Spoiler!


Unknown - These are the pictures that I don't know what part of Stalingrad they are in. If you know please reply telling me.
Spoiler!

For as important Pavlov's house is in propaganda value, it frustrates me how little photographic material there is on the subject.

Yep I looked for a while and that was the only good photo I could find. I couldn't find a single photo of combat.

That's because its story is a myth.

I want to recreate this environment for miniature wargaming purposes, your vision for the RO2 map is the best source of inspiration I have.

Think Ro2s map but a more destroyed environment around it.

I was actually doing some research about the NKVD HQ (Next to Pavlov's) when I stumbled across some aerialpictures of the area.
Maybe the can give you some help.











Some of the aerials are so detailed, you can even see trenches.

Thanks for the Photos. I cropped them to include mostly Dom Pavlova and added them in the main post.

PS. The Grain Elevator section keeps randomly creating 2 spoilers. I keep deleting it and putting it right and it just does it again. If an admin could fix that, that would be good.

Already seen them - scanned at high resolution - and you have the tram line in the wrong place - you have it turning into the rail line... there is a spur rail line that runs through 9 Jan Square, tram-line crosses it...

Ahh, so I've mistaken a train for a tram.
Awesome detail though. And it makes your work (TW) come alive.

I must say, after looking at those aerial photographs I have come to the conclusion that von Richthofen really knows how to bomb a city.
