The Revolution Went That Way......

Statue of Lenin outside the Smolny Institute in St. Petersburg. Smolny was the Bolshevik HQ during the October 1917 revolution. John Read's excellent book "Ten Days That Shook The World" contains a vivid and dramatic account of life inside the Institute during the days of the revolution.
