Sculptor: Rozhnikov Alexander
In 2011 in Podolsk town was established the monument to the sewing machine Singer. A bronze sculpture of the sewing machine in full size was placed on a red granite pedestal. On the working desk of the sewing machine there is a carpet. It looks like a tailor right now walked out for the lunch.
On the carpet there is a historical map of Podolsk with the main sights of the town. The sights are shown as the bas-reliefs. On this map you can see the monuments to Catherine the Great, three temples, the monument to the first trolleybus, the bridge through the river Pakhra, overpass through the rail way and the workshops of the plant Singer.
The monument was established in 2011 in honor of the 230th anniversary of the town in front of the Local museum at the Soviet square. The sewing machine was chosen as a symbol of the town because in 1900 in Podolsk was founded the first plant of the company Singer in Russia.
From the railway station Podolsk go on Revolution prospekt and go along it around one kilometer. At the building 47/1, which next to the Soviet square, turn left and go till February Street. There in front of the Local museum (February Street bld. 52) you will find the monument to the sewing machine Singer.
