Hello Folks

HAPPY NEW YEAR to everybody of you!

I just received some photo albums with old Chinese photos, taken from a European merchant between 1903 and 1907.
It's very impressive to see how China used to be 110 years ago. What a change :scared: !!!
Some of the pictures may strike you familiar as we find the images on our beloved coins..:-)

I want to share some impressions of those times with you... please enjoy  N48
