Some rare photos illustrating the history of Communist China (above to below):

Ignoring the intrigues around Mao that finally led China into a decade of chaos,
once named the "Great Cultural Revolution", we are only considering the key role
that played Mao's last wife Jiang Qing in it. Her days of supremacy ended with
Mao's death in 1976 when Deng Xiao Ping emerged as the new leader of PR China.
The pictures above are showing Jiang Qing on top of her career (right) and in
front of the Supreme Court of PR China (left and center) where she was tried
together with her three accomplices as the so-called "Gang of the Four".
