Title


Tientsin.
  1932 (dated)    29 x 20 in (73.66 x 50.8 cm)

Description


A highly uncommon map of Tianjin (Chinese: ??; pinyin: Tianjin; Wade-Giles: T'ien-chin; [t?i??n?? t??in??]; Postal map spelling: Tientsin), China dating to 1932. Tientsin was a major trading center in Northern China and, like Shanghai, had administrative concessions to several foreign nations including England, Italy, France, Austria-Hungary, Belgium, Japan, Germany and Russia. Curiously none of the foreign concessions are noted on this map, suggesting it was issued by an isolationist anti-trade element. It does however identify streets, rail lines, administrative buildings, parks, and public centers. All text in Chinese.
