The inexorable and irrefutable course of time takes us further away from the past of Old Yerevan. The few remaining monuments of the later period of the over two-thousand-year-old Yerevan fell victim to the short-sighted policy of urbanization. And the coming generations, due to some poets and deliberately corrupted information, will imagine Old Yerevan as a dusty, uncomely and plain provincial city with shabby, clay houses and crooked, narrow streets. As a result, those interested in the history of Yerevan, will not find any precise and full description of the city, for the guides could only present an imaginary story about its unfavorable past and modern beautiful architecture.
And what did the city look like in the XIX century? The answer to this question was given by Ruben Melkumina in his very important and grateful work “ Architecture of Popular Dwellings in Old Yerevan”. He had walked all over the city and with great efforts and scrupulosity had chosen the best species of residential dwellings, measuring every stone or brick, drawing the layouts or taking the photos of the houses. These houses, being evidences of the mode of like in Yerevan of that period, still existed in the 50-60s of the last century…
R. Melkumian’s present album was ready for publication back in 1981…But due to some unknown reasons the album was not published. The preserved material in the archives of our organization by the efforts of … made it possible to gather the photos and compile this volume…As it was decided before, the album is to be published in 4 languages: Armenian, English, French and Russian to arouse the interest of a large scope of readers towards the history of XIX century Yerevan. … This album gives a precise image of Old Yerevan…
The skillful graphic implements are to the favor of the album.
The layouts and the design of the houses, their inner and outer decorations are of great value and serve as a source for the XIX century Armenian architecture, fine arts and ethnography.
The published book is not only a tribute of respect to the talented but untimely died architect, but a reliable and trustworthy source to restore the image of one of the ancient cities of the world.
