Original handpainted painting of the Apollo Lunar Module. From a private collection. Beautiful done. It is painted with ink and probably water paint to fill the colours in.

The Apollo Lunar Module was the lander spacecraft that was flown from lunar orbit to the Moon’s surface during the U.S. Apollo program. It was the first crewed spacecraft to operate exclusively in the airless vacuum of space, and remains the only crewed vehicle to land anywhere beyond Earth.

Poster from 1939 about Alexey Stakhanov.
Alexsei Grigoryevich Stakhanov (1906-1977) was a Russian Soviet miner.
He became a celebrity in 1935 as part of what became known as the Stakhanovite movement. A campaign intended to increase worker productivity and to demonstrate the superiority of the socialist economic system.
On 31 August 1935, it was reported that he had mined a record 102 tonnes of coal in 5 hours and 45 minutes (14 times his quota).
On 19 September, Stakhanov was reported to have set a new record by mining 227 tonnes of coal in a single shift. His example was held up in newspapers and posters as a model for others to follow, and he appeared on the cover of Time magazine in the United States. He was awarded two Orders of Lenin, Order of the Red Banner of Labour, and numerous medals.
The town of Kadievka in eastern Ukraine where he started his work was renamed Stakhanov in his honour in 1978, after his death in 1977.
Stakhanov’s records set an example throughout the country and gave birth to the Stakhanovite movement, where workers who exceeded production targets could become “Stakhanovites”.

This poster is from 1939 announcing the 18th. party congress.
The 18th Congress of the Russian Communist Party (Bolsheviks) was held during 10–21 March 1939 in Moscow. It elected the 18th Central Committee.
The 18th. congress consisted of an analysis of the internal and international situation of the country, as well as its future development perspectives. The Congress considered socialism in the USSR to be largely built, while in its view the country was already sailing towards a new step of development.
A new goal was set: to catch and get ahead of the most developed capitalistic States.
The18th. congress also confirmed the third five-years plan for the development of the Soviet economy.
After the 17th congress Stalin dismissed Soviet foreign minister Litvinov and appointed Vyacheslav Molotov, a move that led to the Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact and a temporary understanding with Nazi Germany.
