EDITORS COMMENTS
This photograph, taken in the late 19th century, showcases the breathtaking view of The Bund in Hankow, China, during the height of its colonial past. The Bund, also known as Hankou Bund or Hankow Bund, was a popular promenade and business district located along the banks of the Yangtze River. This image, from the 1880s to 1890s, offers a glimpse into the early days of this historic landmark. The photograph reveals a vibrant and bustling urban scene, with a mix of traditional Chinese architecture and Western-style structures. The grandeur of the European buildings, with their ornate facades and tall, imposing structures, stands in stark contrast to the more modest, yet elegant, Chinese buildings in the background. The Bund's unique blend of cultures is evident in the diverse mix of people and goods visible in the streets below. The Bund was a symbol of China's opening up to the world during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. This period, known as the "Century of Humiliation," saw China's defeat in several wars with Western powers, resulting in the forced opening of its ports and the establishment of foreign concessions. The Bund became a hub of trade and commerce, attracting merchants and travelers from around the world. Despite the challenges and hardships of this era, The Bund remained a beacon of hope and progress for the people of Hankow. This photograph serves as a testament to the resilience and adaptability of the Chinese people, as well as the rich cultural heritage that continues to thrive in this historic city.
