1937 Haunted Beijing: what remainsAdd to Lightbox Download
China, Beijing. The junction of Dongjiaominxiang Alley with Zhengyi Road is the heart of the old Legation Quarter. Here is where old bank buildings are. On the left the Zhengjin Building previously the Yokohama Specie Bank.
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.
