The workers of Soviet Estonia are making every effort to mark honorably the working people’s historical day of celebration by increasing production. This issue of Photosheet shows the best of Tallinn’s workers while at work. These comrades have given their best to secure with their labor our Soviet homeland in these post-war days of reconstruction. All of these workers are exhibited on the republic’s panel of honor.\r\n\r\n[text within box in Russian is the same, though a close translation would have several extremely minor differences. Also note that the Russian text has paragraph breaks while the Estonian-language text does not]\r\n\r\n[NB: the texts next to each photo are not in high-enough resolution to be translated with accuracy]
