Postcard of a gate at the border of the Soviet Union, probably at Latvia. The view is looking towards the Soviet Union. Neufeld relatives of the Penner family crossed through this gate in 1924. Description accompanying photograph reads: "Gate exiting Russia that Oma and Opa Neufeld's train passed through, 1924." "Oma and Opa Neufeld" are Peter Neufeld and Gertrude (Fast) Neufeld. The writing on the arch (in Russian) translates, in part: "SSSR: Greetings to the workers of the West." On the columns supporting the arch, the left one translates "Long live the commune." The right one translates "Death to capitalism." The writing on the bottom, likely in Latvian, possibly refers to the Latvian town of Zilupe on the Russian border.
