Address: Gogolya str. 45
Build date: 1879
The whole quarter occupied by the Izmail printing house was a large inhouse of a transport office with carriage sheds and warehouses, including the building of the former editorial board of the newspaper “Sovetsky Izmail”, where, in fact, the owner of this yard lived. And one of these brick fodder warehouses was located in the building referred to on this page.
During the construction a brick with the stamp “1879” was put into the wall – small but important detail for the story. Brick, as well as the warehouse, have been preserved until now, but the export office lasted only about 10 years.
In its dimensions, the building is impressive and thorough, but at the same time quite ordinary in its architecture. The walls are made of red brick for the layout, a minimum of decorations, two entrances leading directly to the street. However, one of them is clearly non-working. The fact is that massive wooden doors are located quite high from the pedestrian path – they rise above it by at least a meter. Apparently, there used to be a porch, lost over time.
If you do not know the history of the building, you may get the impression that a merchant’s shop was located here looking on the old double-leaf doors, reminiscent of the entrance to the barn.
In one of the apartments located in this house, the descendants of the children’s doctor Perlis, who died in the 50s of the last century, now live. His name was well known to many Izmail residents. A doctor’s family lived in one part of the building, and in the another on there was an office for receiving patients. Judging by the location there was no shortage of patients.
