It was build
only recently — they have yet to remove construction debris. Building
exteriors are a la Old World.
As described on their website, the complex includes the two surviving
houses of the famous merchant Eliseev and a re-excavated canal. Six of
the buildings, like the ones in the photo, are completely new.
The greenhouse on the right was built in
the 19th century. It is unclear if anything was ever cultivated there,
but it was used for filming "in the open air".
Actually, the whole complex was rebuilt in 1913 to house a movie
studio, which was still here until recently.
One more almost completed elite complex.
Most likely these are new housing units: the guards, the car lot, and
the garages are all top class.
The style is of the mansion that used
to be here.
That's it. On to Summer :)
I am very grateful (as are, judging by their emails, the foreign
visitors) for the many volunteers who have been translating in to
English the Wandering Camera albums.
They are: Polina Korchagina, Lev Kaufeldt, Larissa Rogacheva, Dmitry
Yakimov, Nina Mamayeva, Lilya Sultanova, Maxim Shablygin, Yaroslava
Yingling. And, of course, others, who've
helped before or offered to help, but hadn't yet had time to submit
In addition, let me say that — given the large number of albums — help
with translating them is still very much appreciated.
Write to me.
