* The Great Coastal Gate - the gate system on Pikk street originated in the 1300s, but it was during reconstruction in the early 16th century that the Fat Margaret cannon tower was added. Built from 1511 to 1530, this hefty, round tower has a diameter of 25 metres, a height of about 20 metres, and walls up to 5 metres thick. The origins of Fat Margaret's name are a mystery. Some theories insist it was named for one of its larger cannons, while others hint at a cook called Margaret who once worked here. In any case, the tower has served a number of different functions throughout its history. It has been used a storehouse for gunpowder and weapons, and as a prison. Now it's home to the Estonian Maritime Museum. - http://www.tourism.tallinn.ee

Laktionov’s breakthrough work was "A Letter From the Front", which captured the prevailing mood among the people of the Soviet Union following the German-Soviet War. It is a highly optimistic work, bathed in a warm glow, and is characteristic of the conflictlessness, which became a motif of Laktionov’s later works and Socialist Realism in general.- Wikipedia.

* Aleksandr Laktionovi "Kiri rindelt" kujutab aega Suure Isamaasõja lõpul, mil Nõukogude sõdurite kirjad rindelt juba rõõmustavateks muutusid. Seda koduste rõõmu Laktionov näitaski.
