By the end of WWII, the United States, Great Britain and France divided control over western Germany. Meanwhile, the USSR was given control over the eastern half. This brilliant idea helped solidify the Cold War era by fueling propaganda that pitted western capitalist ideals against communist ones.Today, no such division exits. Images of the Soviet Union's presents are hard to find, which is why this facade fascinated me. The hammers are suspiciously liken to the so-called, "Soviet Hammer." However the triangle and other objects suggest this is connected to masonry.
