Photo and description
The building of the pharmacy at the corner of Sacco and Vanzetti (formerly Kostrizhnaya) and Chapaev (formerly Ilinskaya) streets was built in 1898-1899. elements of classicism are Yu.N. Terlikov. The two-storey L-shaped brick building belonged to one of the pharmacists' brothers - Alexander Georgievich Fridolin, titular adviser and master of pharmacy. For the owner of the house, the building had several purposes: a living room on the second floor, a pharmacy with a front door on the first floor, and storage rooms in the basement of the house.
Pharmacy with a corner bay window (above the front entrance, second floor level) compositionally decorates the corner of the quarter, and the dome, covered with black scales of roofing tin, for a long time it was a landmark in Saratov under construction at the end of the nineteenth century. Facades of the building overlooking the street. Chapaeva and Sacco and Vanzetti, are identical, have two lateral projections, passing at the level of the second floor into four-column Ionic porticoes with three windows. Another feature that makes the pharmacy stand out: stucco molding with a medical emblem - a bowl entwined with a snake - emphasizing the function of the building.
In our time, the building has not lost its functional significance and at the end of the architectural monument, like a hundred years ago, there is a pharmacy, and the second floor is occupied by the city health department. The pharmacy building has been preserved in its original form and is an architectural monument. Located in the very center of Saratov, opposite the building of the Covered Market.
