MOSCOW. Subscription cert. of 25 Shares of 100 Rbls. black on green paper. No 65. Folds. Co. founded in Moscow just before the Bolsheviks took control over the city so it surely did not have the time to become operational. The purpose of the company however, was very interesting as it was in the months before the Russian Revolution that Russian and German engineers had been working on plans to bring electricity all over Russia. This company was surely part of this scheme. In other words, one could say this company was a predecessor of Lenin's GO-EL-RO - State Commission for the Elektrification of Russia and the 1923 founded GOERLO State Institution. In this regard, one remembers Lenin's words that 'communism is Soviet power plus electrification of the whole country'.
