1937 Haunted Beijing: what remainsAdd to Lightbox Download
China, Beijing. The former American Legation now Ch'ienmen 23. This quadrangle of two-story buildings served as the U.S. Embassy from 1903 when it was built, until 1949. It has now been restored and houses a range of restaurants and bars and an art gallery.
Former Legation Quarter: Once a tiny replica of Europe in the middle of the Chinese capital complete with clubs, hotels, bars, banks, department stores and a cinema. Now it's all gone. In 1937, armed soldiers guarded all entrances to the Quarter, today, anyone can stroll the European-style streets but many of the buildings house government offices where is not possible to enter.
