We will go up to the mountains and down to the countryside when we grown up

Coloured Chinese propaganda poster. This poster shows five children excitedly looking through an open window at a group of smiling 知青 [sent-down youth] who are making their farewells inside. The youths wear red cloth flowers on their chest. The luggage and farming tools strapped on their backs of the sent-down youth in the centre indicates they are leaving home now.
