The exhibition is set for one day at the end of 1921 and allows visitors to “walk” in Guangzhou. On the 1921 map of Guangzhou, you can choose the perspective of “Master Dongshan” or “Xiguan Lady” to feel the changes in all aspects of the city. With the scenario-based design, the exhibition offers a comprehensive experience of Guangzhou a century ago.
1921 was a special year for Guangzhou: on February 15, 1921, the Guangzhou City Hall was officially established, which is not only the beginning of the establishment of the Guangzhou Township but also the beginning of the Chinese city system; in March of the same year, one of the six early Communist Party organizations prior to the establishment of the Chinese Communist Party was established in Guangzhou; Sun Yat-sen’s inauguration ceremony as Grand President was held here on May 5; the labor movement flourished that year, and compulsory schooling was introduced in Guangzhou … In 1921 this city broke new ground and established the image of “progressive Guangzhou” at home and abroad.
