A small booklet about Suzhou printed in March 1949, mere months before the founding of the People's Republic of China, is on exhibit in the city.

He Juan of the city's Fengmen Historical and Cultural Area (Shuangta Community) brought the booklet, A Brief Introduction to Suzhou, to the community for exhibition.

The booklet is not much larger than the palm of your hand and the cover is missing. It was edited by the CPC Central China Work Committee and the seven chapters in it sum up the ancient city on the eve of liberation. A map of Suzhou with detailed main roads and facilities is on the booklet's first page.
