Street Scene Beijing May 1981 by 

This is a digital copy of a photo I took in May 1981 in Beijing. Typical clothing then was the Mao suit and there were not many cars on the road. It was a very different Beijing to the city today.

    I love the sign, it says, “people who walk this path, pass the time peacefully.” or something to that extent. Interesting picture.

  • Thanks Xtom for the words on the sign, I had no idea what it said.
