Exhibit Title: Ancient commercial city HongJiang

Location: China

Caption: Located on the border of Xiangxi Snow Peak Mountain, the ancient Trading Town of Hong Jiang was where the goods were gathered and distributed for five provinces, Yunnan, Guizhou, Guangxi, Hunan, and Sichuan. It was given highly reputed names such as “Little Nanjing” and “Southwest Metropolis.” This old town has been very well preserved, rich in content, and looks like “Qingming Shanghe Tu,” a hand scroll painting, directly portraying a panoramic view of the lives of all levels of society, of the periods of the Ming and Qing Dynasties, and the Republic of China. Experts name it “a living fossil of the emergence of capitalism in China inland.”
