Russian Soldiers - Harbin, Heilongjiang Province, China

Harbin, China - the largest city of Heilongjiang Province - Russian Troops. In the territory which was formerly Northern Manchuria and which was heavily populated by Russians as well as Chinese. Almost a 'Wild West' town with transient populations and shifting spheres of demographic influence. Many self-exiled Civil War White Russians ended up living in Harbin. During the Russo-Japanese War (19041905 - the exact date of this card), Russia used Harbin as its base for military operations in Northeastern China. Following the construction of the Chinese Eastern Railway (financed by the Russian Empire), the Russians selected Harbin as the base of their administration over this railway and the Chinese Eastern Railway Zone. The Chinese Eastern Railway extended the Trans-Siberian Railway: substantially reducing the distance from Chita to Vladivostok and also linking the new port city of Dalny (Dalian) and the Russian Naval Base Port Arthur (Lushun). Date: 1905

Burma - Socialist Propaganda postcard

Burma (now Myanmar) - Socialist Propaganda postcard from the early years of the Socialist State in Burma. The card appears to be showing a happy unity between a soldier representing the military (it was Ne Win's military regime that seized power in a coup in 1962), a rural farmer and a factory worker. The BSPP (Burma Socialist Programme Party) advocated a programme of the "Burmese Way to Socialism" which embodied both Communist and Buddhist influences. Date: circa 1963
