Pre-Russian Revolution Roller Shutter in Tallinn
Tallinn, I found an old metal roller shutter
with a Russian inscription. Estonia
was part of the Russian Empire until 1917 and so the shutter dates to before the Russian Revolution.
From an issue of the newspaper Сибирскій листокъ, dated April 10, 1905, there is an advertisement for Штори (draperies) made by the company ,,Тильманское Желѣзодѣлательное Акцiонерное (анонимное) Общество” въ Прушковъ, which means Tilman Ironworks Joint Stock Company in Pruszków. Pruszków is a town outside of Warsaw. This part of
Poland was also under the Russian
Empire at that time.
