Dissolving: The Great Leap

My first step for the Einem Cookie, late 19th c. The candy factory established in 1851 by Theodor Ferdinand von Einem on the Arbat moved in the late 19th century to the Moscow Island, where the little girl is jumping to. Nationalized in 1917, since 1922 it works under the name Red October

Thanks a lot! And just now I see how many of them have already been linked there. I feel really touched, and it encourages to write more.

The dissolution of Red October Factory may present another interesting track of images. The grand offices of the old factory, overlooking Moscow River, are still very much intact skeletons, the Board Room now used by a nature conservancy office, and the accounting department turned into a restaurant called Kontora, which was a popular tango venue back when we visited.
