101004-0023 - Matsue Exposition


Shimane Showa 1930s Unknown

Poster card for the Great Exposition of the Land of the Gods (神国大博覧会, Shinkoku Dai-Hakurankai), which was planned to be held in Matsue, Shimane Prefecture from April 5 to May 29, 1938 (Showa 13).

Due to the recently started Second Sino-Japanese War (1937–1945), the exposition was postponed to 1940 (Showa 15) before being completely cancelled.

This postcard advertises a dream that never materialized. A ghost of things that could have been.
