"There was a host of small museums in flats where
Lenin once resided; their multiplicity suggesting a man who seldom paid the rent."
A hundred years ago, when he was 24, Vladimir Ilich Ulyanov moved to St Petersburg to begin a career which led, among other things, to the renaming after him of the city "where every stone knows Lenin".
Historian John Klier scours what is again St Petersburg to find out what has become of the hundreds of marble plaques, memorials and museums, large and small, which expounded the official cult of Lenin.
