 Poster In Shanghai Propaganda Poster Museum

Tucked away in the basement level of a nondescript apartment building, the Shanghai Propaganda Poster Museum is a remarkable private museum dedicated to documenting the collective spirit of Chinese communism as depicted on thousands upon thousands of striking posters in the years since the 1949 establishment of the People's Republic. A labor of love, the museum was founded by Yang Pei Ming, who grew concerned that both the art of the posters and the complicated history that they document were in danger of disappearing in a China that has increasingly embraced consumer capitalist culture since the death of Mao Zedong in 1976.

The French Concession (shàng hǎi fǎ zūjiè 上海法租界) was the foreign concession of France in Shanghai (shàng hǎi 上海), China. Established in 1849, the concession was progressively expanded in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The concession came to an end in 1943. The area covered by the former French Concession was, for much of the 20th century, the premier residential and retail districts of Shanghai, and was also the centre of Catholicism in Shanghai. Despite rampant re-development over the last few decades, the area retains a distinct character, and is popular with tourists.
