Brochure for Manchuria Issued by the South Manchuria Railway, circa 1932

This Brochure is undated but based on its content and design – clearly prior to the brochures I’ve already posted for the South Manchuria Railway – looks to be from circa 1932. The South Manchuria Railway ( or 満鉄 “Mantetsu”) was created by Japan after its victory over Russia in the 1905 Russo-Japanese War to develop Manchuria.

As noted previously here, the South Manchuria Railway commissioned designers and subsequently released some cutting-edge posters, brochures and advertisements. This brochure appears – by its assumed date and by its design – to have been in the early period of its external marketing campaigns compared to what came later.
