Description of the artwork «Cinema on Arbat Square in Moscow. Poster of the film "Lights on the River" (1954) and a call to participate in elections to the Supreme Council of the USSR»

This picture is from the archive of the American military Martin Manhoff, who worked at the US Embassy in Moscow in the early 1950s (and was deported due to espionage charges). The collection includes color photographs and films - they shot the daily life of the city. The Archive of Martin Manhoff was found by historian Douglas Smith in 2016, after the death of Manhoff and his wife (probably both spouses took pictures in the USSR).
