The poster "Auntie Brings Ciba Again" depicts a scene in Shanghai, where store clerks brave heavy rain to deliver ciba (sticky rice cakes) to ethnic minority children who are patients. In the image, a child dressed in traditional ethnic attire lies on a hospital bed, and the text on the blanket indicates that he is at the Shanghai Children's Hospital. This suggests that he's not in his hometown but has been brought to the better-equipped hospital in Shanghai.

A Han Chinese store clerk is shown holding a lunchbox in one hand and an umbrella with raindrops in the other, as he delivers food to the young patient. The child and their family warmly welcome the arrival of the clerk. The pouring rain outside the window underscores the challenges the clerk faced while delivering the meal.

The poster beautifully exemplifies China's emphasis on unity and inclusivity among Han and ethnic minority populations. It captures a scene that portrays care and compassion across cultural boundaries. The act of delivering food to the young patient showcases a practical way in which the Han majority extends support to minority groups, fostering a sense of togetherness and understanding.

  • If there's anything you want to know about posters, vintage or more modern, there's nothing Mr Ross doesn't know. His open and friendly manner helps one to choose the most suitable material whether for decoration, investment or whatever... I can't recommend him highly enough.

  • Just wanted to say thanks for the poster. You sent it on Thursday and it was delivered the following Monday (nearly quicker than it took us to get home) to our house in Perth, Australia. We have just had it framed. We love it; it goes perfectly with the room.

  • The Ross Gallery has the best selection of vintage posters I have ever seen. Seriously, if you are in the market, they are the people. And, they know everything there is to know about the posters' provenance.
