This Russian propaganda poster was left hanging in a mess hall when the station was abandoned. A note in both Russian and English written by Chief of the Station "Romanov" (possibly V.M. Rogachyov) is still visible on the poster's upper right surface. The note informs anyone arriving at the station after 19 March to visit the Arctic Institute in Leningrad. It was later presented to the operation's leader Captain John Cadwalader, USN and donated to the museum by his grandsons.
