The 50s to 70s of the last century
Small piece of hand 拎 large piece of cloth
At the beginning of the founding of the Republic, there was no concept of "Spring Festival". In 1953, the words "Spring Festival Passenger Transport" appeared for the first time in the newspaper. At that time, the scale of returning people during the Spring Festival was much smaller than it is now. When people are away from the door, if they have less baggage, they will be hand-held or put into a small bag. The baggage is usually wrapped in a piece of cloth, and then tied with a rope into a "well" shape, which is carried on the back. Some college students will also bundle the bedding and carry them away.
In the 1960s, when going out, a military green canvas bag was standard. When you went home for the New Year, this bag must be packed full.

In the 1970s, there was a print on the canvas bag, and when I came home with such a canvas bag, it was returned from the "big city."
If you can go home for the New Year with a leatherette, it feels more "faceted."

Woven bags prevail
Since the reform and opening up, more and more people have chosen to go out to work and study. Most of them will return to their hometowns during the Spring Festival, and the "unusual global population movement" has gradually formed. In 1981, the "Spring Festival" in the modern sense appeared in the media. The annual "Spring Festival" has begun to take shape.
During this period, people's duffel bags were rarely wrapped in cloth, and most of them were woven bags. One-shoulder leather bags and cotton and linen handbags were also common. During the Spring Festival, passengers dressed in tunic suits provoked two snakeskin bags with a pole. Occasionally, there were several people carrying shoulder bags and hand luggage bags, which became the standard for train stations and bus stations at that time.
In 1980, the police helped the passengers who had difficulties, and the shackles in their hands were woven bags.
In the mid-1980s, passengers at Nanjing Station carried luggage for passengers during the Spring Festival.
In the late 1980s, during the Spring Festival in Anhui Fuyang Station, passengers lined up to go out to work.
Backpack popular trolley case
In the 1990s, there were more and more migrant workers, and the Spring Festival was growing in size. The crowd carrying the big bags in front of the train station is very spectacular. During this period, in addition to snakeskin bags and handbags, people are still accustomed to carrying a cotton linen backpack to squeeze the train. This bag has a large volume and can hold a lot of luggage, which is very convenient for travel.
In the middle and late Spring Festival of the 1990s, passengers who pushed the trolley case were also seen. At this time, the trolley case generally has only two wheels, but even then, it is much less important than the tote bag. People's travel burden is greatly reduced.
In the Spring Festival of 1998, young boys and girls who worked in Beijing towed heavy luggage and prepared to take the train home for the Spring Festival.

With the improvement of living standards, people have more and more luggage items, and the tools for selecting luggage are more diverse. Many passengers carry a shoulder bag, a carrying bag in the left hand, and a trolley case in the right hand, which has become a beautiful landscape in the Spring Festival.
