Poster Plakat

Poster of the Week

"Socialism is the union of the three divisions of the workers’ movement".

This industrial theme was often seen in posters during the early period of the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia. The woman's banner reads "Worker Cooperation" while the banner to the right reads "Professional Unions". The left banner indicates "Political Parties", implying multiple parties, or more voting choices than just the Bolshevik party. This poster is historically important as it likely pre-dates the arrival of totalitarian communism that came about in the Soviet Union by 1921.
