Forbidden City Hundred Excellent Books for Public reading activities …… The  602 years old ancient buildings of the Forbidden City have gone through calamities and are treasures of the years, and they are still shining today. Wandering in the Forbidden City, we respect the splendour –Beijing- China- People’s Republic of China  …..Since 1860; the ancient capital Beijing has had photos under the camera. In the future, no matter how many winds and rains this ancient city has gone through, or demolition, or changes, we can often find her once “beautiful shadow” from historical photos. These precious images not only photographed immortal buildings, but also the strange and inexplicable smiling faces when facing the camera. This smile becomes eternal.

But do you know what old Beijing looked like more than 100 years ago? What buildings have already changed? What powerful or unknown people have you lived in? What sad or happy stories have happened? …

“160 Years Across the Capital: The Imperial City of the Imperial Capital” uses short and easy-to-understand text, accompanied by a large number of historical and contemporary photos, supplemented by pictures and maps. It seems simple but rich and diverse. The author’s goal is very simple: to use the image of light and shadow to outline the history of changes in Beijing’s past and present; to present the contrast between the past and the present in the photos through familiar or unfamiliar scenes, and to convey the emotions and memories of generations with tortuous stories. And imagination: What did the cities and buildings around us look like in the past? What fate and change have they experienced? What kind of imprints did historical figures and events leave here?
