Notes: The back of the picture holds the mention (in Russian) "At Smolny". The picture was very likely at the IInd Congress of the IIIrd International: one recognizes the decorations of the entrance of Smolny.

 

At the centre of the photo, the man with a cap may be Lenin, surrounded by delegates to the Congress.

 

Unknown photographer.

 

Description: 1 photograph. Black and white ; 11 x 15.5 cm.
