Repina street in your seventeenth album is the narrowest
street in Petersburg. Before (1871-1952) it was called Solovievskii lane.
And even earlier (1830 - 1871) - Pesochnyi (Sandy) lane. It is a little
longer than 500 meters, and its average width is 5.6 m.
Here is another view of that street that I did not put
in the album:
The unknown monument in the парк
of the Arts Academy is a granite column that was discarded during the
works of interior decorations of Kazan cathedral. It was set up first in
the Academy's courtyard (as was suggested by Voronikhin) at its 50th
anniversary, and transferred to the park in 1840-s by architect Brullov,
who changed its pedestal and chapiter.
It would be great if you could get into the Academy
building, go up the main stairs and take a picture of the round (!)
courtyard through the large windows looking onto it. The courtyard is
rather neglected, but still very beautiful, created by Vallen De la
Mothe and A.F.Kokorinov).
"Hieroglyphs" on the
facade of the Academy are the symbols of "the three main arts"
corners, hammers, brushes and palettes together with chaplets and images
of the sun).
Sorry, I didn't go inside. But here is the frame
where the hieroglyphs are seen better:
