The Gang of Four was the name given to a leftist political faction composed of four Chinese Communist Party officials. They came to prominence during the Cultural Revolution (1966-76) and were subsequently charged with a series of treasonous crimes. Not to worry, the Gang of Four in the image above is just a bunch of people who like to walk around the city with their cameras. From left to right: me, Jeanne, Brad, and Jason. Taken on Valencia St.
