Dom Knigi (House of Books), St. Petersburg

The formerly faded, now again opulent, House of Books in St Petersburg. It was once the grand home of the Singer company in Russia.

Pretty much all I remember of my first visit in 1975 is that the marble steps were so cracked and worn that it was like picking your way through a heap of rocks.
