After the three brick factories were amalgamated, the Brick Museum also came under common ownership, so it was decided to supplement the existing museum exhibits with historical material taken from the Pobyeda and Lenstroikeramika Factories (this material related to the Keramika Factory and had originally been part of the museum collection.
The permanent exhibition devoted to the Pobyeda Factory includes numerous photographs, drawings, plans, copies of documents on national brick production and particularly on the history of the factory going back to the 19th century. All this valuable mass of information had been carefully collected over a period of several years by Maya Mironovna Melkova, who previously worked as the permanent librarian at the Pobyeda Combine’s library. Some of the material which she wasn’t able to find in the libraries and state archives, Maya Mironovna obtained from the descendants of the Zakharov family (who had built the first brick factory, the Pobyeda), with whom she has maintained friendly relations. Among the hundreds of documents, a choice had to be made for the Museum — to include what would still be of interest for people who had nothing whatsoever to do with the brick industry, no matter how great the temptation to include everything that was there. “We had to organize the exhibition in such a way,” said Maya Mironovna, “that all the Pobyeda LSR factories were equally represented from the point of view of their histories and no one’s interests were ignored.”
Part of the museum collection devoted to the Pobyeda Factory covers the whole variety of the history of brick production. There are photographs of types of factories, their owners, workbenches, workers and the products they made. The second floor reflects the history of the Pobyeda Factory from the Soviet period (from 1922) to the present day. And, naturally, plenty of attention has been given to such important stages in the history of the factory at Kolpino as the implementation of the project to build the first automated factory in the Soviet Union and Pobyeda’s ‘German’ period as part of the KNAUF Group. Material which cannot be placed on the walls due to lack of space has been included in original information books.
The Lenstroikeramika Factory, which is considerably ‘younger’ than the Pobyeda has also been given a place on the second floor of the Museum. Here there are photographs of equipment, products and buildings from the 1950s to the 1970s, as well as a historical reference that includes curious facts and figures from the life of the factory. The exhibition devoted to the Nikolsky Brick Factory is soon about to be supplemented and additional space has been left for this.
The museum exhibition of the Pobyeda and Lenstroikeramika Factories was planned by the Kolpino artist, Olga Alexandrovna Leppik, who has kept her professional eye on its development.
The first visitors to the renewed Brick Museum were a group of controllers from the Pobyeda Factory, who came to the Keramika to learn about production with their colleagues.
Anyone who wishes may visit the Brick Museum. The museum is not only a tribute of respect to the past and a unique opportunity to preserve history for our descendants, but an original advantage over our competitors. Because no other Brick manufacturer in the country has a museum like this one.
