(*) About "Lighthouse by V.G.Shukov, Ukraine 1910"


The tower depicted in this stamp was builded by Shukov, but it´s not a lighthouse and never was. This construction was the world first hyperboloid structure and was builded for the All-Russia Industrial and Art Exhibition of 1896 in Nizhny Novgorod.
