From a portfolio of 27 prints.

On January 30, 1929, the Presidium, one organ of the Soviet government, banned the pealing of church bells, and within the next three years, hundreds of churches were demolished or closed and looted. Massive numbers of bells and icons were destroyed; the metal was used to support industrialization efforts.
