Featured Poster of the Week
At the 50th anniversary of the October Revolution, the Soviet Union had a much to celebrate. Josef Stalin's death in 1953 was followed by a loosening of cultural and political constraints. Post-war re-building saw large-scale deforestation projects develop new urban centers and acres of prefabricated housing tracts were built for growing families. By the 1960s, food was no longer rationed and there was abundance (perhaps less in reality verses in appearance) across the nation. The 1960s would be the last prosperous decade for the Soviet Union as the 1970s and '80s ushered in economic setbacks that slid the nation towards permanent insolvency.
