Красин

The back of the photo has a hand-written note:

 

"Рожд 25 июля 1927г

Снимок 5 июня 1934г

Юра Шустов"

 

("Born 25 July 1927

Picture taken 5 June 1935

Yura Shustov")

 

The hat says "Krasin", which was a famous ice-breaker ship back in early 30s (wikipedia), though I'm fairly certain this is just a suit and the boy has no connection to the ship.

 

This was purchased at a Yekaterinburg market, but the seller didn't know anything about the history of the pictures he was selling.

 

This picture is in the public domain.
