Soviet Arctic Camp Near the North Pole

Image or picture of the first Russian/Soviet airmail stamp C97: Arctic Camp

This stamp was issued 1956. A plane set to land is the symbol of a vital link to home for scientists at this arctic camp. The colors of this stamp seem almost non acrtic, more desert like. The subjects in the illustration tell a different story. Weather stations, and clouds suggesting extereme cold, with the sun very low on the horizon.
