Photographer's Note

So this is a shot of the main deck of museum ice-breaker "Krasin". Made in 1915, it's the oldest polar ice-breaker in the world. There are ice-breakers, like "Tampa" in Finland, that are older, but "Krasin" is the oldest open-seas ice-breaker. It saved Nobile polar expedition after its disaster in 1928; during WW II it participated in Polar Convoys.
Now it's the museum in St-Petersburg.
Overview of the vessel is here
