Tinted glass slides produced by the Victor Animatograph Company, Davenport, Iowa, USA. They show famine victims, mostly children, suffering from severe malnutrition. As the lantern slides are in the same format as those used for Russia's labours and Russia's struggle, they were presumably purchased at the same time, but were not selected for use in talks intended to promote the new Soviet system.
