SILVER TRADE ROWS (31 Nevsky Prospect) is a monument of Classicism architecture. It is a three-storied commercial building erected in 1784-87 (architect J. Quarenghi) at the corner of Nevsky Prospect and Gostinaya Street (later Dumskaya Street) on the spot of the wooden shops of silver traders which had burnt in 1783; hence the name. The ground floor is decorated with an open rusticated arched gallery facade, the first and the second floors are decorated with a false arcade with semicolumns of the Tuscan order. In 1799-1802, a tower was erected at the corner of Nevsky Prospect and Dumskaya Street which joined the Silver Trade Rows and the building of the City Duma. The gallery of the Silver Trade Rows was glazed in the 1840s. After the Great Patriotic War of 1941-45, the shop of sportswear was opened in the building. In the course of the reconstruction in 1982 (architect G. V. Boldyrev) a gallery was opened in the building, Izoproduction shop was placed in the back of the gallery. Now the ground floor houses Ananov’s jewelry shop.
