Travel Brochure: Hsinking, South Manchuria Railway, 1935

This brochure is another example of a series of brochures issued by the South Manchurian Railway as part of a beautiful series in the second half of the 1930s (previous). This brochure “Hsinking” was issued in 1935 to promote travel to Hsinking the capital of Manchuria. The artist signed it either in a Chinese character or with his own symbol but I cannot identify it. I particularly love the smaller letters embedded in the larger letters. As noted previously, I do not know the back story on the creation of this brochure series. If any one knows the history, please let me know.

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.
