PMK, written in Cyrillic, stands for Передвижная Механизированная Колонна or "mobile mechanized column" in English, today simply to be called a building company. Dozens of such PMK's were building houses for factory workers all around Soviet Union. Often the workers would use red bricks to built in some communist slogans but in this house in the outskirts of Daugavpils, Latvia they decided to include their own "company's" name.
