The Great World Entertainment Center in Shanghai by night. Compared to the 1957 poster, the entertainment has been modernized. A film is being shown, and there are some fairground attractions, such as a punchball, a shooting gallery and a carnival mirror.
Designer Zhang Yuqing again delighted in the details. Each face in the crowd is different and individual.
