A somewhat offtopic but nevertheless amusing Soviet propaganda poster charting the path from socialism to communism through a metaphor of a train schedule. Copy in the top left-hand corner: "The train goes from the Socialism station to the Communism station." In the bottom right-hand: "The experienced operator of the revolutionary locomotive comrade Stalin." The train stations are symbolic events and phenomena of the revolution: the first newspapers, the month of the revolution. The end station, right under the front of the engine, is the communism. Notice how far off the charts it sits. No wonder. More background and details on Soviet Posters.
