The Red Army

On our recent trip to Shanghai I couldn’t resist picking up some interesting historical items of days gone by. The first was this magnificent alarm clock.

When the clock is wound Chairman Mao waves his red book passionately at the adoring crowd. I got some playing cards too.

Each card has a different propaganda slogan and an old propaganda poster on it.

The next item I bought was a nice watch. The Chairman waves his arm to the adoring public. The second hand has a nice red star on it too.

Not pictured here is a commie T-shirt that I bought as well. All of these items cost me less than $10 Canadian. How’s that for a bargain!
