Item #1850

[Moscow, 1939. 24 leaves of photo paper. 9,7x13,3 cm. In original post-bound cloth. Some stains, covering detail of one screw lost, otherwise very good.

An excellent propaganda photobook. Created for a limited number of delegates, it had never been on sale.
The edition opens with a portrait and 1931 citation by Stalin “We have everything in the country except rubber, but in one or two years we will also have rubber at our disposal”. Each following leaf features a photograph of a poster, drawing or graph showing successes in various areas of building socialism in the Soviet Union. The third five-year plan [1938-1942] was announced to be chemical. All these images contain statistics covering a period of 1937-1939.
They are dedicated to: production of tires and rubber shoes; members of the Rubber Industry Union sent to sanatoriums and resorts; their children sent to summer camps, shock-working movement; liquidation of illiteracy; cultural events for members of the Union, including lectures, country excursions, concerts, etc. A curious leaf shows a number of operating ventilation units and a number of places in dressing rooms.
In 1922, the State Trust of Rubber Industry was established. After 4 years from when Russia’s economic blockade was imposed, the first rubber products appeared on the market. The peak demand was in 1929, when more than 45 million pairs of rubber shoes were produced. Experiments for Soviet synthetic rubber were vigorously launched in the 1920s. By 1930, experimental plantations were established with Kazakh chondrilla and imported from Mexican guayule – these plants were considered an alternative to rubber trees. The production of synthetic rubber began at the SK-1 plant in 1932 and soon it was extended to an industrial scale.
