MGSNKh Typo-lithography Workshop, Moscow

MGSNKh (Moscow City Council of National Economy) was formed in 1918. It municipalized hundreds of local enterprises. For its printing needs, MGSNKh confiscated several printing shops in Moscow and put them under state control such as the 2nd Typography Workshop, the 3rd State Typolithography Workshop (formerly owned by Ivan Kushnerev) and the 15th Lithographic Workshop that was formerly under the ownership of Ivan Mashistov.
