Family portrait Alexey Leonov, Soviet cosmonaut, 1965.
Photographer unknown.

They even hung a picture of Yuri Gagarin.

The last stade of the Luna-1 Soviet cosmic rocket launched on January 2. 1959. U.S.S.R., Moscow, Exhibition of Economic Achievement, “Science” Pavillion. Colour photo by I. Shagin. Undated soviet postcard, c1960.
Luna 1 was launched 2 January 1959 at 16:41 GMT (19:41 Moscow Time) from the Baikonur Cosmodrome by a Luna 8K72 rocket. Luna 1 became the first ever man-made object to reach the escape velocity of the Earth (what is also known as the second cosmic velocity), when it separated from its 1472 kg third stage. Luna 1 passed within 5995 km of the Moon’s surface on 4 January after 34 hours of flight. It went into orbit around the Sun, between the orbits of Earth and Mars. (Wikipedia)
