"Storming of the Winter Palace" - CCCP
From a esthetic point of view, I always loved old Soviet Art and political propaganda posters... I think they have a extreme straighten and power that attract me. Katya is a postcrosser from Moscow and she sent me four amazing vintage cards with old soviet stamps. I'm even creating a CCCP label for this kind of cards and hope to receive lots of them in the future. This one shows the storming of the winter palace on the days of the October revolution.Thank you very much Katya. This postcard took 30 days to arrive!
