In this July 1, 2012 photo, a visitor photographs the wax figures of Mao Zedong, standing at center in background, the founder of the People's Republic of China, and others at the Site of the First National Congress of Chinese Communist Party in Shanghai, China. The Memorial of the First National Congress of the Communist Party of China commemorates the first party meeting in 1921 by Mao Zedong and 12 fellow leftists _ including two from the Moscow-controlled Communist International. Visitors can see the parlor where the first congress was held. The memorial on Huangpi South Road and Xingye Road south of People’s Square also has a museum about party history.
