The poster titled "Technological Innovation Blooms" depicts a scene from a Shanghai textile factory in the 1970s, echoing the call of Chinese Vice Premier Deng Xiaoping that science and technology become the primary productive forces. The image portrays four female factory workers, donned in white aprons and hats, gathered around a traditional handloom expert dressed in light blue attire. All figures wear joyful expressions, with one of the weavers demonstrating the workings of a new machine to the master craftswoman.

The elderly woman nods in approval and raises her thumb, symbolizing her acceptance of this innovative machine weaving. In the background, numerous mechanical looms reflect the immense scale of Shanghai's textile industry, showcasing China's transition from traditional to modern industrial practices.

In the New China era, women gained access to equal educational opportunities. As Chairman Mao emphasized, the government's objective was to ensure that every capable woman had a place in the labor market under the principle of equal pay for equal work. The artists behind this poster highlight women's contributions to technological innovation, recognizing their equal societal status.

  • 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.
