An exhibition detailing Taiwan's history regarding its transportation infrastructure will be shown at the National Dr. Sun Yat-sun Memorial Hall from Sept. 30 till Oct. 15.
Organized by the National Archives Administration and the Ministry of Transportation and Communications, "A Centenary Exhibition of Taiwan's Transportation Archives” aims to educate the general public to not take modern transportation for granted.
Comprised of five sections - "Taiwan's Path to Seamless Transportation,” "Travel by Railway,” "Travel by Road,” "Travel by Sea” and "Travel by Air” - the two-week special exhibition utilizes photos, records, blueprints, artifacts and videos to present transportation-related milestones from the past hundred years.
As an island known for its numerous honors in the area of convenience - including the world's highest density of 7-Elevens and other convenience stores - Taiwan and its people owe their current lifestyle to earlier generations of hard work.
For a better understanding of how transportation kick-started Taiwan's economic miracle and to pay tribute to all the unsung heroes behind the scene, please visit the Yat-sen Gallery at the Taipei memorial hall before Oct. 15.
The exhibition will then travel to the south of Taiwan, where it is slated to meet the public between Nov. 1 and Dec. 15 at the Kaohsiung Museum of History.
