Green China Rising

This was submitted by Lloyd Tenn. The video is nearly an hour long but more than worth while watching. After watching it made me proud to be Chinese. 

 

Chinese Scouts Gay Farewell Party for scouts leaving for the 8th World Jamboree reported in the Pagoda Magazine

Funny how the word "Gay" has changed in its connotation.

Can anyone identify the girls the boys are dancing with?

This section of the Pagoda Magazine dated August 20th, 1955 was submitted by Neville Hoo. It was kindly loaned to him by Roy Tenn.

If anyone has copies of old Pagoda magazines we would love to copy them digitally to add to our archives.

According to Clive Fung, who was the last editor of the magazine, the copies that he had, were unfortunately lost in a fire. The magazine was first edited by Thomas HoLung, followed by Eddie Young, then Leslie Chin and finally by Clive Fung.
