Peking

Much of the events that occurred during the Boxer Rebellion took place in Peking and the surrounding areas.

 

The Legation Quarter and the Forbidden City after the Boxer Rebellion

View of the Legation Quarter and, in the background, the Forbidden City taken in late 1900. The photographer stated that the picture was taken from the Chien Men Gate [Qian Men], but the positioning of recognisable buildings would suggest that the picture was taken from the Hata Men Gate.
