Photographer's Note

Near Aurora cruiser, one can meet Vladimir Ilyich Lenin. After more than 100 years of the October Revolution, he looks quite fine.:) As usual, he wears a famous flat cloth cap. He bought this cap in Stockholm, earlier he wore a stylish black homburg. In changing his hat, he was making a clear political statement. The cap he adopted was, and remains, strongly associated with the working class in Europe, the Americas, and even Asia. On many monuments, he has this cap, on the head or in the hand. But once happened, that they unveiled a monument in Leningrad, and the astonished viewers saw that he had two caps, one in hand and another on the head. :).
