1989 Shanghai Business Atlas

It's been a while since I posted. Here's a handful of advertisements from Shanghai Business Directory published in 1989. Almost every page has a treasure, but these especially gripped me (and I'm not even 15% through the volume one).

A typical page. Factory directors all all crusty working men, some desperately grabbing telephone receivers, some scribbling in empty folders.

Sex appeal can sell anything.

Pretty much anything.

The apparel produced in this cheerful building is already so attractive it does not need a model to sell it.

Wildly marbled bathrooms are also wired.
