FONARNY LANE, between the Moika River Embankment and Griboedova Canal. The lane was laid in the 1730s and named Golitsyn Lane in 1739, after the last name of a house-owner, Prince M. Golitsyn. In the second half of the 18th century, it was given the name Materialnaya Street. The present-day name dates back to the 1770s, to the Fonarny state public house, located in house which belonged to a lamp-post designer. In 1870-71 M.S. Voronin's bathhouses were built (house No. 1/82, architect P.Y. Suzor), as was house No. 4/9 in 1900-01, which accommodated the Society for the Assistance of Students and Teachers (architect V.V. Shaub). In 1911, V.N. Likhachev's apartment house was constructed (house No. 18, architect K.N. Rochefort). House No. 3/8 was once occupied by composer M.I. Glinka (the 1830s) and playwright N.V. Kukolnik (the 1840s). On 14 October 1906, an armed detachment of the Union of Socialist Revolutionary Maximalists captured a coach which was transporting money from the port customs house (400,000 Roubles) to the State Bank; the event took place in Fonarny Lane. Eight participants of this "expropriation" were executed upon the sentence of a military court.
