London Bridge is not located “further down the river”, it’s located in Lake Havasu City, Arizona!

I question the color "photographs" as photos; photos of paintings okay. I have no problem with sepia photos, black and white photos or even the greenish and white as I'm sure the developing solution and the age of the photos plays a hand in the coloration. But full on color photographs from the late 19th and early 20th century I find improbable. I do like the pictures.

Beijing is NOT the second largest city in the world. It is the second largest in China. Mexico city is larger than Beijing. Lived in SH for years and loved it.
