The Industrial Penetration of China in 1925


Picked up a copy of a map from 1925 the other day entitled The Industrial Penetration of China. It was produced in the United States for a guide to China’s industries and economic development.


By the wonders of modern science if you click on the image it becomes larger and clearer.


It’s rather confusing though does indicate some interesting facets – the clearly highly important role of Hankow as a centre of ironworks, flour mills and cotton mills and the heavy concentration of electricity plants around Shanghai and eastern China gives a good indication of where people had access to electricity – no wonder the Socony men heroes of Alice Tisdale Hobart’s Oil for the Lamps of China were all sent deep into the hinterland. Wusih (Wuxi) was clearly an important industrial centre as was, unsurprisingly, Shanghai. The concentration of industry in north east China was obviously something the Japanese took note of thinking, as they were at this time, of annexing Manchuria. Hong Kong was also a major shipbuilding centre at the time as well as port. Peking? Then as now it seems they preferred scholarship and governing to manufacturing.

People say what matters is the beauty on the inside…Then why is it that the good looking girls go for the good looking boys and vica versa?This shows that for some outer beauty is as important as inner beauty, although inner beauty is above all beauty.Tera gold

Your heart breaks into million pieces, you regret at ever chance you had to make things right, ever night you lay motionlessly staring at the top of your celling wall thinking why didn’t I do something before tonight? Then you wake up the next morning with a brand new chance to do it again, take it and tell them how you feel before its too late, like it was for me!

I’m from the place in which temperatures go properly below freezing and these boots make my ft really feel like they are resting in entrance of the fireplace comfy and cozy. These boots possess a comparable features since the Cate the amazing boot; they are excellent in below freezing temps and possess a removable felt innerboot. as well as they are awesome stylish I have them in dark so through the winter weeks I positioned on them with everything. they are an extremely much a complete great offer more useful option than some sheepskin boots (hint hint) plus they are much from ugly too.
