Legation Quarter

The former Legation Quarter was once a rarefied and privileged section of Peking. In 1937, the quarter was guarded by imposing gates and armed sentries, with signs ordering rickshaw pullers to slow down for inspection as they passed through.  Some foreigners hardly ever left the Quarter; they had all they needed; commerce, entertainment and a sense of protection.
