Chongqing 1920 重庆老照片

Chongqing, capital of Sichuan province is in the news at present. This photograph of a crowded narrow street there was taken in 1920 by British businessman Warren Swire. Many of our photographs of the city focus on the stunning, steep slopes and steps up to the city from the river, but here is a taste of the crowded streets.
