Scenes from an Old Bridge in Tongcheng, Anhui Province

Today I was surprised to learn that someone I met was from the city of Tongcheng (桐城) in Anhui province. She seemed even more surprised to learn that I had visited there about 5 years ago. With the exception of a famous mountain, Anhui is not a common destination for foreigners. And Tongcheng is not one of Anhui's more prominent cities.

In the Tongcheng spirit, here are a few photos from an historic bridge:

As I looked through other photos from Tongcheng, many of which include scenes of older buildings with traditional Chinese architectural styles, I was reminded of someone recently saying he had never seen anything "old" in China that had not been "disney-fied". To highlight some of what he has missed, I will share more scenes from Tongcheng later.
