Pho­tos with amaz­ing sto­ries

Of­fi­cers of the Bol­she­vik Rev­o­lu­tion drive an im­pro­vised Rolls Royce Sil­ver Ghost snow­mo­bile once be­long­ing to Tsar Ni­cholas II with a ban­ner proudly pro­claim­ing “Greet­ings to the Repub­lic”.

Lenin would later take the Tsar’s Sil­ver Ghost snow­mo­bile as his of­fi­cial car.
