Note: These 27 images of 18 advertisements are from an informal survey of Chengde (Hebei Province) commercial streets conducted in June 2002. They are organized to illustrate some of the trends in outdoor political advertising and public service announcements in China today: consumerism, privatization of public services (including propaganda), and promotion of local economic development.
