The Chinese embassy in Washington received a special gift from a retired U.S. Foreign Service officer on Feb.19.
It was a set of 24 photos taken in 1930s China and given by Richard Garrison of Arlington, Virginia to Wu Xi, deputy chief of mission of the Chinese embassy.
The photos, which cover street life and scenes in major Chinese cities, including Beijing, Shanghai, Wuhan, Guangzhou, Hong Kong and Macao, were left by his mother, Stella Garrison, who passed away more than 10 years ago.
CCTV’s Cui Lingnan filed this report.
The old photos show scenery, landscape, historical landmarks as well as life of ordinary people in China. They were produced and published by Keystone View Company.
