The Moscow Metro
From the eighteenth year of the revolution, or 1935 to you and me, the opening of the extraordinary, amazing Moscow Metro. The cover done up in faux marble, to evoke the materials of the Metro.
Krushchev and Bulganin top left! On the top right, the fellow with the white hair, moustache and party tunic, that’s G. Abakumov, who in the late forties and early fifties succeeded L. Beria as head of MGB [CHEKA, NKVD, KGB …the secret police]. There are not many photos of this not-so-famous mass murderer.
Again top left, that young scamp N.S. Krushchev.
