  • Description

    The dream of the Lithuanian people is coming true. A big hydropower station is being erected on the River Niemen near Kaunas. A great event took place recently at the construction site. The builders began to lay concrete on the main structure of the hydropower station. The chairman of the Council of Ministers of the Soviet Lithuanian Republic, Shumauskas, cuts the tape on the spot where the first cubic metre of concrete is to be placed. This sign reads that the Kaunas Hydropower Station is being constructed in accordance with the decisions of the 20th Congress of the Soviet Communist Party. In all 300,000 cubic metres of concrete will have to be laid here. In 1959 the industry and agriculture of Lithuania will already receive electric power from the hydropower station on the Niemen.
