22 Photo’s From China From Over A Century Ago.

To be fair i don’t know much about Asia. Sure i had history lessons and a lot got covered. But only looking at how China developed itself in the last hundreds of years is staggering. From the days of the dynasty’s to the land they now got united. Most of the things changed now, but thank god we already had camera’s when a lot of change was coming to those lands.

The next photo’s are made around the 1900’s, and show a different insight on how it is towards nowadays.
