RUSSIAN SPACE PROGRAM PHOTOGRAPHS.
A collection of 5 albums containing approximately 180 photographs, together with approximately 90 loose photographs, mostly black and white but a few color. Most 6 by 4 inches. Much of the album contents, and some of the loose photographs, are copy prints. The albums arranged chronologically and mostly captioned and dated below images in Russian.

A record of the Russian space program from the 1960s through the 1980s, assembled by the director of human resources at the Baikonur Cosmodrome for many years, Anatoli Darmostuk. Images range from formal posed portraits of the cosmonauts to snapshots of them around campfires, bicycling, fishing, and playing chess. Includes Gagarin, and in the later images Gorbachev, and the ASTP crew.
Also included are three commemorative medallions, one commemorating the launch of Sputnik 1 in 1957, the other two marking the 30th anniversary of the founding of Baikonur.
