Notes : The back of the document holds the mention (in French): "Near Smolny". Another photograph from the collection, entitled "Smolny", shows the same parade door, with the RSFSR and the Russian revolutionary symbols.

 

One presumes that this photo was taken during the IInd congress of the IIIrd International, on the 17th July 1920.

 

Unknown photographer.
