Xizhimen - 1900?
Originally uploaded by jiulong.
This gate (West Gate, a.k.a. Xizhimen) should be no more than 2 miles to where I work, if it still stood. Actually, I should have passed it thousands of times in the past 30 years, alas all after it was torn down. The pictures feels so familiar, though it looks so remote.
I am sending this picture to my Dad..
