Streets Konyushennaya, small and large, have appeared in the 1730s, soon after the construction of the court stables. There were barns, blacksmith, home grooms and other related facilities. During the XIX century, wooden buildings were replaced by stone, and then joined the stables next to the building in one, turning it into a residential block court-Stables Department. It turned out surprisingly long - fifty five windows on the facade, the equivalent of seven houses on the opposite side. The final form of house number 2 bought in 1900, when he was to have built on four floors. After the revolution, the street name was changed to Zhelyabova and apartments grooms were communal.Here is The former apartment of the imperial groom by Ekaterina Sokolova..
