    The photograph of the Soviet poet Marshak among the pioneers falls in the same category. Here, the Soviet cultural past is meeting with the Soviet future. The children are reading his poems from a book illustrated by another Soviet cultural institution – the cartoonist trio Kukrynisky. The photograph affirms the achievements already done in the Soviet Union and points to the new generation of the Soviet enthusiasts.
