Photographer's Note

I don't care, guys and girls. I just like centered photos, and I don't care that it's against the Great Laws of Decent Photography!
***
Here are the house, quite interesting, I suppose, standing in the Northern part of the St-Petersburg centre.
In the spring of 1917, way before the October Revolution, 5 guys gathered here, on the third floor in the room behind the balcony. These guys were professional revolutioners, and they had important and secret meeting. They were the Politburo of Communist Party, and names there assembled were:
Vladimir Lenin
Lev Trotzky
Iosif Stalin
Vyacheslav Molotov
Grigory Zinoviev

and some others.
They decided to proceed with the Revolution here, despite efforts made by some more cautious members of the Party (including Stalin, according to some historians).
I don't think that guys assembled there thought that they are actually changing the world, but that's what was going on.
Strange.
