These are some photos of China that are some 200 years old. The photos provide a unique look at some of the nobility as well as the laborers in China and where they lived during that era. This is a unique observation.

200 years ago photography wasn't invented yet, so the title is a bit off date. Nice pics nevertheless.

I do not think Chinese should take pride in that period of history.

Orlando, chemical photography was invented almost 200 years ago - first photo was taken in 1826 but later destroyed. Before that people used camera obscura (a box with little hole in one of sides) to draw manually observed object.
Most of these photos were taken before WW2.

the jap and korean all originated from china anyway. why else would all three uses chopsticks and have words squeeze into blocks of brush strokes. musical instruments and architectural design also share their similarities.

These photos were taken last week. China hasn't advanced as much as they would like the world to believe...

I agree, none of these pics are 200 years old, most of them seem to have been taken in the early 20th century, some in the late 19th century…

Still very interesting documents of their time…

Oops, there's picture of an airplane, they're NOT 200 years old yet, Photography was invented around 1830 but the quality was pretty bad till about 1920 when gelatin based film was perfected...great quality photos none the less !

Photo #20 the guy on the right is Ulysses S. Grant, guy on the left is Li Hongzhang ( 李鸿章 ) this was 1879 ...Richard Nixon was widely known as the "First" U.S. President to visit China....I guess everybody was wrong weren't they?

Orlando, not really. Photography was invented in 6th century AD.

@BOOBOOZILLA:
China, Japan, Korea originated from Mongolia.
