Collection: China - 1983
A selection of images throughout most of China, July - October 1983. Many cityscapes have changed beyond recognition since then ... I have arranged the sets on this page in the order that I visited the places named. I have also added sets for images of "transport interest" - steam locomotives, tramcars and trolleybuses. I traveled in China for three months in 1983, and managed to visit, or "pass through," every province except Tibet, Hainan (which part of Guangdong Province back then), and Taiwan (which I visited in 1980). Except for those traveling with carefully-selected groups, few Americans visited China following the establishment of the People's Republic in 1949.
