辛亥革命 100 Xinhai revolution

10th October 2011 marks the 100th anniversary of 辛亥 Xinhai Revolution. Pictures seen below are of the normal 1st October landscape at Tiananmen Square. However, an exhibit I’ve seen at the National Library of China (which I will blog under a separate entry) brings interesting perspective into the centennial commemoration.

as usual, Sun Yat Sen is evoked on this occasion, although 1911 to 1949 is often interpreted or NOT interpreted in modern Chinese history on the mainland.
