V.I. Lenin Steel Mill, Magnitogorsk. (Awards given by the Party or factory management for quotas met or exceeded by the hot rolling mill. A retired technician here told me that all the exceeded quotas since 1935 were fictitious. Only the local Cheka [forerunner of the KGB] knew the true figures, and that was the ultimate closely held information.) December 1991.


Inscription: "V.I. Lenin Steel Mill, Magnitogorsk / (C) Shepard Sherbell/SABA" in graphite on verso.
