An unusual monument has appeared in Kovrov town of the Vladimir Region. Celebrations of the town’s foundation date were crowned with unveiling of a monument to the Excavator.
Quite naturally, the monument has settled down in the Park of Excavator-Builders. The sculpture depicts a caterpillar vehicle. Such model became the first-ever excavating machine in this country. It was created in the town of armourers seventy years ago, in the far-away year of 1931.
It is interesting that the author of the project is a former worker of Kovrov Excavator Building Factory Valery Tikhomirov.
