In 1986 the complete production of the Lomo Kompakt Automat was transferred from the main LOMO PLC factories, otherwise known as the “Home Base”, to these nearby works.
In 1985/86 at the time of the high level meeting in Moscow the “Filiale” (Subsidiary Works) in St Petersburg was also completed. As a result the production of the LOMO LC-A ran at full speed and new workers were continually being signed up. On good days in the LOMO-PLC factories there were up to 25,000 people. Work soon began in the new production hall called Filiale; this large three storey building with 100,000 square metres of floor space was purpose built for the production of the LOMO LC-A.
In 1986 the complete production of the Lomo Kompakt Automat was transferred from the main LOMOPLC factories, otherwise known as the “Home Base”, to these nearby works.

For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.
