Globalization 1951-style

This is my find for today from Hong Kong University library. I found it in an anniversary booklet for The Ritz Ballroom, a nightclub in North Point. It is the kind of image that is often used to show how transnational corporations use images of globalization to further their commercial designs by implying that consuming their products promotes global peace. Remember 'I'd like to buy the world a Coke'? This advertisement was published in 1951. A reminder that there is nothing new in the world?
