1937 Haunted Beijing: what remainsAdd to Lightbox Download
China, Beijing. The walk under the railway bridge toward the Fox Tower.
The Fox Tower: now known as the Dongbianmen Watchtower, loomed over the old Tartar City, as one of the largest watchtowers protecting Peking. The Fox Tower was built in 1439, and right away the locals decided that the building, with thousands of bats and surrounded by wild dogs, was haunted. At his base there is now a little garden: this is the spot in which an elderly Beijinger, taking his songbirds for a walk on a cold January morning in 1937, spotted Pamela's mutilated body.
