HISTORY

  • They completed the construction of the house in 1915. It housed the branches of the international Petrograd Credit Bank, David Harlab's Photo Salon, and at that time it was the most popular in Elisavetgrad.

Harlab created the first advertising leaflets for the plant; he was eagerly photographed by local nobility and Yelisavetgrad junkies.

He also had a photo studio on Dvortsova Street in Gunkova's house. This photo studio was among the best in town. Three master photographers worked here, producing eight thousand shots a year.
