Transpechat' (Transport Printing) was a state-owned trust that disseminated advertising and literature for the NKPS (People's Commissariat of Transportation and Communication). While the trust oversaw a number of printers in the USSR, its headquarters was in Moscow at 46 Bol'shaia Pereiaslavskaia Street.
MSPO (Moscow Central Union of Consumers' Societies) was established in 1898. It gained significant membership throughout Imperial Russia after 1907. After reorganization by the Soviet government, MSPO became an association of unions and its name was changed to the Central Union of Consumers' Societies-- Tsentrosoiuz. In May 1921, Tsentrosoiuz became the single government agency responsible for distribution of wholesale consumer goods in the country.
