Sketch of a show window that propagated the successful socialist system through the celebration of bread and socialist labour competitions. The bread is the symbol of prosperity and wealth as well as of a stable agriculture. Behind the bread the Hungarian flag appears with the communist red star while in the far background factories can be seen. These elements were very typical and were present on almost all socialist realist works as a result of the government's restriction of style and subject of posters at the time.
