Beijing Hu Tong Red Doors

Beijing Hu Tongs is a dying breed. In a few more years we’ll probably not going to see any more of them. They will be  leveled out and provide land for new sky rises. I’m sure government will save a few blocks for historic preservations and to attract tourists, but the real ones, where people use to live for hundreds of years will soon be nothing but history.  On our recent trip to Beijing we walked through couple Hu Tongs and I took a few pictures. Usually, doors is all you can see, they will lead you into internal compound. We didn’t go into them, but the doors itself are quite interesting themselves. All painted red with different level of tier and wear. Here is the first photo in this series. Click on the photo to see larger and better resolution.
