Adventure in Friendship - Canadian Committee of the World Federation of Democratic Youth, 1958 w. Vintage Photography

Vintage Leftist Leaflet Project

See the end of this post for details on the project.

Leaflet: Adventure in Friendship - Canadian Committee of the World Federation of Democratic Youth, 1958

This leaflet is both political and contains a lot of vintage photography, of which we are very fond on The Left Chapter.

It chronicles the trip of the Canadian delegation to the 6th World Youth Festival that was held in Moscow in 1957. 200 Canadian youth took the trip, which is quite remarkable given the era. 

The retrospective booklet was published by the Canadian Committee of the World Federation of Democratic Youth.

When The Left Chapter began part of what I wanted to do on the blog was to show and highlight vintage public leftist election/political leaflets and booklets. While many of these have been offered with commentary to date, a very large collection of hundreds of them from several different sources remains and to preserve these often quite rare documents we will be posting them on a regular (almost daily) basis now often without or with minimal commentary so that people may have access to them as quickly as possible as an historical resource. 

While these will all be leaflets from a variety of different leftist viewpoints and countries, they are being posted as an historical/study resource and the views or opinions expressed in them do not necessarily reflect the views of this blog or blogger.

All of these posts (as well as posts made to date) will be listed on the page: Vintage Communist/Socialist Leaflets (which is still being updated with past posts).

If you have any public, vintage leaflets or booklets you would like to contribute to this project please contact us via
