Nostalgic China 1997 – Beijing – Forbidden City

We took a family trip to Beijing in August of 1997and visited a few of the famous landmarks in this great city.

I trip to Beijing would be incomplete without a visit to the Forbidden City. The Palace Museum is a national museum housed in the Forbidden City at the core of Beijing, China. It was established in 1925 after the last Emperor of China was evicted from his palace, and opened its doors to the public. Constructed from 1406 to 1420, the museum consists of 980 buildings and covers 72 hectares.

These photos were captured on a Canon film camera and the negatives subsequently scanned and then post processed in Capture One Pro. The image quality in many cases is poor as many of the negatives were damaged by heat and humidity over time.
