Beijing Then, Pre-1980

View of the famous Imperial Summer Palace in Beijing, one of the most beautiful places in all China. Once th home of the celebrated empress dowager Hsi Tai-Hou, the summer palace is now visited as a show place by tourists and Chinese visitors. Some of the beautiful pavilions are now falling into decay from official neglect. If Japan's plans to bring Henry Pu-Yi, the so-called " Boy Emperor" (now known as Kang-Teh, Emperor of Manchoukuo) back to the Dragon throne in Peiping, Pu-Yi undoubtedly would spend his summer in this lovely imperial retreat.
