1937 Haunted Beijing: what remainsAdd to Lightbox Download
China, Beijing. The Werner's old courtyard, at No.1 Kuijiachang Hutong, is now divided up into multiple dwellings.
Armour Factory Alley: where Pamela Werner and her father lived, is a hutong that dates back to the Ming Dynasty. Today the street is known as Kuijiachang Hutong and though it still survives, is lined with crumbling brick homes concealed behind concrete additions. Pamela's old home, at No.1, is now divided up into multiple dwellings. Just down the street from the Werners lived Edgar and Helen Foster Snow, two of the best-known foreigners in Peking in 1937 (Edgar Snow was the first foreign journalist to interview Mao and wrote the famous book Red Star over China).
