An historic photograph of Chelsea vs. Dinamo Moscow, a game played in November 1945, which ended with a 3-3 draw in London, will be sold by Bonhams on 10th June.

The photograph is part of a set of three which are estimated to be sold for £2,500-£4,000.

In total there will be 145 images in the Borodulin Collection of Russian Photographs being sold by Bonhams for prices ranging from £400 to £4,000.

Photographs in the collection cover every aspect of life in the former Soviet Union and were often bought directly from the photographers, many of whom were Borodulin's friends. Borodulin was described as a Star of World Photography by the English Photography Yearbook in 1967.

Lot 98, the Chelsea Vs Dinamo Moscow photograph is by Ivan Shagin (1904-1982). Shagin's career as a professional photographer began in 1930, over ten years after he started taking photographs. He worked for the newspapers Nasha Zhizn and Kooperative Zhizn, and from 1933 for Komsomolskaya Pravda. Shagin's photographs cover life in Soviet towns, as well as the navy and air force - images which were published in USSR in Construction. From the 1950s, he worked for Pravda and the agency Novosti.

Matthew Haley of Bonhams Books Maps and Manuscripts Department, comments: "For disappointed Chelsea fans this might be just the thing to cheer them up. A happier reminder of their club's link with Moscow."
