We have undertaken the  review of the sky area  of GRB 030329 (Peterson
& Price, GCN 1985) on astronegatives, collected in Ukrainian NAS Main
astronomical observatory plate archive (1950-1998). All the plates,
covered the area with  GRB 030329, were taken for an analysis.   The
comprehensive investigation  of these images shows nothing at this
location.

The most reportable results are given in the table:
