The original image was cropped at the top, so the only info visible is the name of the left hand piece: STATION MARTIA.

Brian..

I couldn't find a 1953 Schwartz catalog but one station was still on sale in their 1954 catalog. This gives the missing name: Station Saturnia.

SarasotaRobby has already posted a picture of this particular Space Station on Page 1 of this thread. Here's confirmation of its 1953 date as seen in this Dyson & Horsfall Christmas Catalogue:
