American Red Cross - Miscellaneous - American Red Cross in North Russia. A street corner in Archangel showing hygienic conditions which made work of American Red Cross so important and far reaching. Street and house are built on an old swamp, which has never been drained. Only sewers are rough ditches underneath sidwalks, which frequently break under weight of unwary pedestrian who is projected into sewer ditch beneath. Mud in roads is so deep that it is impossible to do any trucking with automobiles on side streets. Main street is paved so poorly trucking is very difficult. Street car runs over six mile route, up main street of city. Fare is sixty kopecks (nominally 35 cents) for each of three "fare stages" and has to be paid in postage stamps

U.S. National Archives

The objects in this collection are from The U.S. National Archives. The U.S. National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) was established in 1934 by President Franklin Roosevelt. NARA keeps those Federal records that are judged to have continuing value—about 2 to 5 percent of those generated in any given year. There are approximately 10 billion pages of textual records; 12 million maps, charts, and architectural and engineering drawings; 25 million still photographs and graphics; 24 million aerial photographs; 300,000 reels of motion picture film; 400,000 video and sound recordings; and 133 terabytes of electronic data. All of these materials are preserved because they are important to the workings of Government, have long-term research worth, or provide information of value to citizens.
