Pre Cultural Revolution propaganda publication extolling the virtues and spirit of the workers of the Daqing oil fields - a model industrial venture. Each of the 20 sheets bears one large black-and-white photographic illustration and 19 of the sheets show workers engaged in worthy activities. Two things of note: the first is that, unusually, the names of the photographers are given at the bottom of each sheets and, secondly, is the statement on the publication details at the bottom of the first sheet which states 'Zhanlan Zhaopian' and 'Nongcun Puji Ban' ('Photographs for Exhibition' & 'Normal Level Countryside Printing') which would seem to indicate that there were different levels or quality of printing depending on the target audience. All text in Chinese. rare. A couple of minor tears to a couple of sheets but generally in fine condition.
