Smallest Norilsk street named after builder Leonid Anisimov

March 25, 2022

In the early 1950s, the first and only houses of Lomonosov street were erected near Pushkin square: No.3 and No.5.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. In the early 1950s, the first and only houses of Lomonosov street were erected near Pushkin square: No. 3 and No. 5.

After crossing Kirov street, the small street stumbled into the two-story buildings of the 17th quarter and ended there. But in the 1970s, new construction began on the same line. And although a whole block lay between the old and new houses, the new houses were the continuation of Lomonosov street.

In 1988, the last three buildings – No. 13, 15 and 17 – were renamed into a new street, which was given the builder Anisimov name. Confirmation of this can be seen even now: the old number 17 at the end of Anisimov, 5, house.

Leonid Anisimov was an honorary citizen of Norilsk, an honored builder of the RSFSR, one of the eleven Norilsk citizens who won the Lenin Prize for new methods of pile foundation on permafrost.

He headed the Spetsstroy of the Norilsk combine, under his leadership they built the country’s first hydraulic structure on permafrost – a dam on lake Dolgoye, as well as a wooden water conduit on piles, stretching from Norilskaya river to the town.

There is a legend that they wanted to name eleven streets in Norilsk after all the eleven laureates of the Lenin Prize, which would cross the Laureates street. And Anisimov in this list was the first alphabetically.

In the last issue of the History Sport photo project we told how Norilsk looked like when it became a city.
