The steamship “Ilyich” came to 16: 00, the authorities arrived ... On the next day ... a rally was organized. Cattel (head of construction) spoke about the construction of the city, the shipyard. " Thus, according to the memoirs of Maria Ivanovna Svistunova (Boromotova), a resident of the village of Permskoe, construction began on the country's future defense outpost in the Far East - Komsomolsk-on-Amur.
