The little church.

This beautiful church is located in downtown “old” Tianjin (where the foreign commercial center used to be, before the Japanese war).  The church, built in the early 1900’s, has been classified as a historic site, but it’s being used as a warehouse and place to toss junk.

It drives me a little nuts when I see things like that.  Places of beauty, reduced to…what?  All the old architecture of this area is equally lovely, and unique…but as with other historic sites in China, there’s little that local governments do to preserve these architectural gems.
