The Russian Revolution of 1917 - CCCP
Another great card with a mural reproduction of old soviet times, this one celebrating the year of 1917 when the Bolshevik took the government and gave the power to the Soviets. In Portugal a different type of revolution took place in 1974 and the major symbol was also the carnation. Thank you very much Katya. This postcard took 30 days to arrive!
The Russian Revolution is the collective term for a series of revolutions in Russia in 1917, which dismantled the Tsarist autocracy and led to the creation of the Russian SFSR. The Emperor was forced to abdicate and the old regime was replaced by a provisional government during the first revolution of February 1917. In the second revolution, during October, the Provisional Government was removed and replaced with a Bolshevik (Communist) government.
