Printer Notes: Mospoligraf 15th Lithography Workshop in Moscow was located at 23 Bol'shaia Sadovaia Street. Its history begins with Ivan Mikhailovich Mashistov (1851-1914), founder and managing director of Mashistov Typolithography. His company printed magazines, historical books, and during the First World War, it printed and published patriotic posters. Under the Soviets, the Mashistov Lithography Workshop became the 15th Lithographic Workshop and was also known as the MGSNKh (Moscow City Council of National Economy) Typo-lithography Workshop.
In 1921, the Soviet Union formulated a plan to consolidate the nation’s largest and best printing operations into state-owned trusts and in 1922, the Mospoligraf Trust was organized to consolidate the Moscow printing industry. Mospoligraf was the second-largest Moscow printing trust outside of Mospechat’. Both trusts secured a myriad of local printing houses. As a result, the 15th Lithography Workshop was managed by Mospoligraf.
