A postcard from Chelyabinsk, Russia

A postcard from Chelyabinsk, a city located to the east of the Ural Mountains in Russia, on the border of Europe and Asia. Recently the city was on the news all over the world because of the superbolide meteor which had exploded over the city.

This postcard shows the Chelyabinsk Tractor Plant. It was founded in 1933 and became very famous in Russia during World War II since seven other industrial entities, which were capable to produce the tanks, were either wholly or partially relocated to Chelyabinsk.
