The autumn leaves are falling like rain. Although my neighbors are all barbarians and you, you are a thousand miles away, there are always two cups at my table.

T’ang Dynasty poem

Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn, a cool breeze in summer, snow in winter. If your mind isn't clouded by unnecessary things, this is the best season of your life.

Restored Photos of Old China

At China-Underground, there is a post which consists of 75 restored old photographs from the late Qing Dynasty to the early days of the Republic; spanning about 100 years in all. The photos come without captions, who you'll have to use your imagination for the most part.

The post may be viewed here. Enjoy.
