Title

Xi'an County Town Center

Description

A 1930s picture taken by a Japanese photographer shows Xi’an county’s town center (today part of Liaoyuan city, Jilin Province), which was the nearest town to Dr. Chang’s home village. Notice the bilingual billboard in the middle, which juxtaposes Japanese (right) and Chinese (left) characters for Japan’s allegedly blood-fortifying tonic “Blutose,” a subtler sign of the country’s dominance in Manchuria.
