These 2 old photos were taken by WANG Zeng Ku, a grandson of FAN Da Gu, in 1956. FAN Da Gu was 72 years old at the time. The Double Sword exercise can be seen in the photo on the right.

These photos were taken in the Wang Jia Gu Village outside Dong Zhi Men. Most people from there bear the surname of WANG. The villagers’ livelihood depended on vegetable production. In particular, they were famous for their water turnips.

The village is close to ‘Ninth Prince Grave’ where Dorgon was buried. The current Xin Zhong Street is situated to the south of the village.
