Soviet postcard to commemorate the October Revolution. From 1977. On the card there is the ship Aurora wich played a part in the Revolution by firing the first shot at the Winter Palace.
The text on the card says:”October Revolution Holiday!”.
The October Revolution was a revolution in Russia led by the Bolshevik Party of Vladimir Lenin. It followed and capitalized on the February Revolution of the same year, which overthrew the Tsarist autocracy and resulted in a provisional government.
As the October Revolution was not universally recognized, there followed the struggles of the Russian Civil War (1917–22) and the creation of the Soviet Union in 1922. The Bolsheviks would become the Communist Party of the Soviet Union.
