Spent the weekend strolling Beijing and noticed this old building on Chaoyangmanwai Dajie - no exact number but the apartment building next door is no. 79. It appears to be gutted inside with windows missing which must mean the Beijing weather is getting at the structure's innards but on the outside looked structurally sound. Surrounded by fences, locked up and no signs of construction (or, perhaps more importantly as this is Beijing, destruction) taking place. But I have no idea what the building was in a previous life? Any ideas anyone...please. Hopefully it will be refurbished - though in Beijing the odds are it'll be gone next time I walk that way.
