Photo Album]: 50th Anniversary of the Russian Revolution
Russia, 1967. Oblong quarto. Measuring 12" x 8.5". Red cloth photo album containing 36 black and white or color photographs measuring 6.5" x 9" mounted on boards with a few captions in Russian. Album is near fine with some edgewear; the photographs are fine. A photo album compiled by a group of Czech communists visiting Tula, Russia to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Russian Revolution in 1967. On the verso of the front board is written, "Propaganda demonstration at facilities and institutions of Tula," roughly translated from Russian. The photos are large and are taken throughout the city at various locations for the observance of the anniversary of the revolution. The album features busts of and monuments to the communist leaders of the past including Lenin. There are lists of people involved and memorials dedicated to those who participated in the cause, all written in Russian. One photo shows a mosaic on the side of a building of a worker, another shows a road lined with revolutionary images, and one shows a museum with a giant banner proclaiming the 50th Anniversary and "Glory to October." The travelers are pictured reading together at a table and in front of the memorials throughout the city. An interesting collection of high quality tourist photos taken by Czech Communists in 1967.
