Panic is entirely absent from these workers at Moscow’s “Sickle and Hammer” iron and steel plants as they hear that they are at war with Germany. Note that women workers actually outnumber the men. The meeting shown here was held in the yard of the steel plant. V. Molotov, Vice Chairman of the Council of People’s Commissars of the USSR and People’s Commissar of Foreign Affairs, told the nation of the German attack on the Soviet Union, June 22nd, 1941.

Ferrotyped prints are processed in such a way that they are shiny. The print has a sensitive surface, usually thinner, because it was put through a press while still wet.

Ferrotyped prints have a sensitive surface, usually shiny and thinner, because they are put through a press while still wet. Ferrotyping makes the surface of the photograph smoother. Light does not scatter as much on a smoother surface, so this increases contrast. That makes ferrotyped images better for press photography.
