How the steel was tempered !
#211 - 365
I think that is what the statement below the mural reads, this is from the technical school in pripyat, a advert which nikolai alekseevich ostrovsky is portrayed holding out a passport and voucher for the komsomol (like a Soviet Youth). The guy was losing his sight but it didn't stop him writing nearly two novels. The first one was called How the steel was tempered which he is best known for, and the second was called born of the storm, but this was never finished as the years of suffering illnesses he died at the age of 32, in 1936. This is what i've read up on since looking for information on this image.
