Schematic Map of the 1900 AD Legation Quarter and its defenses - Coming Soon !
At No 34 (on the south side of the street) is an imposing, red brick building with pillars.
Although you would not expect any such thing when looking upon it today, this is the former address of the Banque de L'Indo-Chine (Dongfang Huili Yinhang), the French Colonial Bank supported b the Empire of France.
If you were to have a chance to view the brickwork beneath the bottom windows you would find a peculiar and hidden detail.
Upon careful inspection of the brickwork under the window on the right, and you will be able to make out ghostly, faded Chinese characters proclaiming 'Long live the mighty leader Chairman Mao'. The brickwork underneath the window on the left similarly declares in almost indiscernible characters 'Long live the mighty Chinese Communist Party'. It is a relic of the Cultural Revolution Era.
The former address of the First National City Bank of New York (Huaqi Yinhang), now serving as the Beijing Police Museum.

The Roman Catholic Cathedral, the London and American missions, and the Maritime Customs burned the night of June 17th in summer of 1900 AD.
The Management Committee of the Tiananmen District government.
The former U.S. legation grounds to the South.
