Fabulous Arab Doorway - Sidi Bou Said, Tunisia

An absolutely fabulous Arab Doorway in the port town of Sidi Bou Said Tunisia, with a pair of knockers for the main decorated wooden doors (for ease of knocking when on a camel or on horseback?) and an additional knocker for the smaller inset door, being rapped by a visitor, keen to gain entrance. If the wonders beyond match the ornate glories of the door, then one can appreciate his keenness to gain admittance. Date: circa 1910s

The Xinhai Revolution

The Xinhai Revolution, also known as the Chinese Revolution or the Revolution of 1911, was a revolution that overthrew China's last imperial dynasty (the Qing dynasty) and established the Republic of China (ROC) (note - not the Reading Ornithological Club). Featured as inset portraits of: Huang Xing or Huang Hsing (18741916) - Chinese revolutionary leader and politician, and the first army commander-in-chief of the Republic of China. As one of the founders of the Kuomintang (KMT) and the Republic of China, his position was second only to Sun Yat-sen. Together they were known as Sun-Huang during the Xinhai Revolution.To his right is Li Yuanhong (18641928), a Chinese politician during the Qing dynasty and the republican era. He was three times President of the Republic of China. When the Xinhai Revolution of 1911 broke out, the Wuchang mutineers needed a visible high-ranking officer to be their figurehead. Li was well respected, had supported the Railway Protection Movement, and knew English, which would be useful in dealing with foreign concerns. This card also depicts the Guangdong Navy agreeing to support the revolution and the capture of Nanking on the 2nd December, 1911 by the revolutionaries after the Battle of Nanking. Date: 1911
