German term or phrase: Unsere Erfolge (Russian magazine title 1930s)
I am looking for the English title of Russian magazines from the 1930s. This is in connection with industrial photography of the period. It could be that similar to "USSR in Construction" these magazines also had an English title.

This is in connection with a photography book on iron ore mining in the Urals that I am translating from German into English. The target audience will be those who appreciate and collect fine art photography, mining history, industrial history. The source sentence is below. The titles that I am looking for are "Feuerchen", "Unsere Erfolge", "Schichtwechsel" and "Sowjetunion":

'Weder die Zeitschrift „Feuerchen“, noch „Unsere Erfolge“, „Die Arbeiterin“, „Schichtwechsel“ oder „Sowjetunion“ feiert die neue Industrie so sehr und lässt die Fotografie der Fabriken zu einem so eigenständigen und visuellen Ereignis werden, wie die „Sowjetunion auf der Baustelle“ (USSR in Construction) es tut.'

Nashi Dostizheniye
Explanation:
This literally means "Our Achievements," but it may be the same thing, since "Nashi Uspekhi" does not come up as such in a Russian search. (The link is in Russian. It also has the Russian title of the one on construction, which I'll add to that question.)

Notes to answerer
Asker: None of the magazines, such as Ogonyok (sometimes translated as Little Flame), Nashi Dostizheniya (Our Accomplishments), Rabotniza (Working Woman), Smena (New Generation) or Sovetsky Soyuz (Soviet Union, successor to USSR in Construction), celebrate the new industry and allow the photography of the factories to become such independent and visual events as USSR in Construction formerly did.
