Photographer's Note

A prominent building on Nevsky Prospect (the main avenue of St. Petersburg), “Dom Knigi” is St. Petersburg's largest book store since having been taken over two years after the Bolshevik Revolution in 1917. Several local publishing houses also have their offices here.

From its construction in 1904 until 1917 it was the German owned Russian HQ of America's Singer Sewing Machine Co. The glass globe on the roof is the Singer trademark.
