"Dress Rehearsal for Great October" Portfolio of poster/prints celebrating the 1905 Revolution as preparation for the Bolshevik revolution of 1917.

While a span of twelve years in "real time" separated the two revolutions, there was only a two year gap between 05's 60th Anniversary in 1965 and Great October's 50th in 1967. While the two uprisings certainly did have much in common, Party propagandists in the Sixties really worked the "dress rehearsal" concept as they focused on getting the USSR ready for the big national 50th anniversary celebration of Lenin's revolt.
