CHENGTU now CHENGDU
Have you got any pictures taken in or around Chengtu during the 1930's or 1940's? Please let me know. Thanks.
For about 14 months in 1936 and 1937, Moon Chin flew many flights between Chengtu and Chungking.

Today, Chengdu is the most important city in west China. It has the largest private museum in China, the "Jian Chuan Museum", covering a lot of history of anti-Jap war, both comunist party side and nationalist side. You can see a lot pics about the museum at the following site: http://image.baidu.com/i?tn=baiduimage&ct=201326592&lm=-1&cl=2&fr=ala1&word=%BD%A8%B4%A8%B2%A9%CE%EF%B9%DD (site may be slow to load).
In addition, Chengdu has very a long cultural history which is quite different from Beijing or as CNAC knew the name, Peking. Furthermore, Chengdu is the hometown of the panda(s).
