Memories of Beijing are making a comeback in a new exhibition called "Change Over 60 Years", which opened this week at the Baoguosi Temple.

One-thousand items are on display, gathered from Cultural Centers across Beijing. The institutions have spent over ten years collecting these oldies. An obsolete radio set, a rusty bicycle, and dog-eared comic books. These items are embedded in the collective memory of those growing up in the Chinese capital in the 60s and 70s. Home life in Beijing has changed tremendously over the past six decades. A typical setting in the 1950s usually reflected a Spartan lifestyle, without a TV, a radio, or a telephone.
