Footnotes

  • Pennie Smith took the photograph for this poster in Caroline Coon's Ladbroke Grove studio. The images from the session were used for the 'Give 'Em Enough Rope' album and its promotion. This particular image was considered so romantic that it was turned into a poster. The Russian poster was bought by Coon and Simonon in Moscow during their trip there in January 1978. The Russian words translate as 'For The Power Of The Soviet!'
