Catalogue Note

Alexander Chutkikh was assistant foreman at the Krasnokholm Textile Mill who initiated a Stakhanovite movement as part of the post-war Five Year Plan which resulted in huge increases in both quality and productivity. His methods were later rolled out to all textile mills as well as other industries.

The present lot was published as a postcard by Sovetskii khudozhnik in 1950.
