Description

A street in Zhangjiakou (formerly known as Kalgan) busy with people and animals, where clothes sellers display their goods on a platform and give the sales pitch to passers-by.

This illustration was made from the writings of Catherine de Bourboulon, who left diaries and other documents of her travels in Asia where she spent several years with her husband.

The caption reads: “The street of the clothes sellers in Kalgan.”
