State Publishing House, Tambov

The State Publishing House had its origins in Imperial Russia as the Royal Print Yard in St. Petersburg. As the Red Army controlled more provinces and cities in former Imperial Russia, the State Publishing House developed offices outside St. Petersburg. Tambov is a region as well as a city south of Moscow. During the Russian Civil War, the region witnessed the Tambov Rebellion (1920–1921) whereby local residents rose-up against the Bolshevik Red Army.
