Exhibition "China and World Expo" opens in Shanghai

Moving up the coast a bit an exhibition has opened in Shanghai to highlight China's participation past World Expos. On display are momentos, official documents, and some prize-winning items that go back more than a century.

More than twelve-hundred objects on display show the interaction between China and the World Expo over the event's one-hundred-year history.

The relics include medals, stamps, pictures, and postcards that carry the memory of the event's past.

A pair of books recording Chinese attendance of the 1876 World Expo held in Philadelphia are among the exhibits. The books depicted the visiting experience of over one-hundred overseas Chinese students at the expo, using enchanting narration.

The two books were written by Qing dynasty literati Li Gui. He recounts how the event left an impression in the eyes of Chinese. In addition, he drew maps of the sites, which makes the books more cherishable as historical documents.

Also on show are medals and documents about the 1915 expo held in Los Angeles. Chinese merchandise won big in that fair, winning 12-hundred-and-11 prizes, making that year the biggest win of China in all sessions of the event.

Visitors can stand in awe next to a printing machine of China's old brand "The Commercial Press", and the books printed by the press. Elsewhere, there are some vintage clocks and tea products. Among others, these were all winning items of the World Expos dating back more than one century ago.
