Photographer's Note

I was coming back to the hotel, I was far of it and when I entered in Tverskaya Avenue the rain begun and I was obligated to stay under a roof for twenty minutes. After that I saw a curious thing in a lateral street and discovered the building where once worked the House of loans of State Treasure, a building that was created between 1913-16 with many imperial signs, as you can see here.
It was created as a pawnshop, an option to usury. After revolution the building was used as a depot for the jewels and precious objects stolen from the rich Russians, tons of them. After that the building was used to produce the bank notes used in the whole country.
Here we can see the imperial eagle with two heads and bellow Saint George, the patron saint of Moscow.

Estava voltando ao hotel, que ainda estava bem longe, quando caiu uma pancada de chuva que durou uns vinte minutos. Fiquei abrigado e quando a chuva parou desci pela avenida Tverskaya e num dado momento olhei para uma rua lateral, vi um pr嶮io curioso e fui ver.
Era a Casa de Empr廥timos do Tesouro do Estado, erguida entre 1913-16 para servir de op誽o agiotagem, algo como uma casa de penhores. Depois da revolu誽o as joias roubadas dos ricos da Rssia ficaram amontoadas nesse pr嶮io, eram toneladas de coisas preciosas. Anos depois o local serviu de f墎rica para as c嶮ulas de dinheiro usadas no pa疄 inteiro.
Reparem que no topo est a 墔uia de duas cabe蓷s, o s璥bolo do imp廨io russo, mais abaixo temos S緌 Jorge, padroeiro de Moscou.
