Description: PETR KARACHENTSOV (DATES UNKNOWN) [BOLSHEVIK GREETINGS TO THE COURAGEOUS CONQUERORS OF THE NORTH POLE.] 1937.
36 3/4x24 1/2 inches, 93 1/4x62 1/4 cm. Ogiz-Isogiz, Moscow.
Condition A / A-: minor restoration in image.
In 1937, the Soviet Union not only set up and manned the first drifting ice station at the North Pole, but also achieved a record setting, trans-Polar flight from Russia to the United States. The drifting ice station was supplied by a fleet of aircraft, including modified Tupolev TB-3s, known as ANT-6-4M-34R Aviaarktika, one of which is depicted here. The caption at the bottom is a quote by Stalin which reads, "There are no fortresses which the Bolsheviks would not be able to seize!"
