Talati House Hotel - Tientsin - 1929
Talati House Hotel - Tientsin - 1929
Victoria Rd & Bromley Rd, British Concession. The opening of China by force by the foreign powers through the Treaty Ports allowed fortunes to be made. One such fortune-seeker was SB Talati, a Parsee from Bombay who arrived in Tientsin penniless. He began his business career trading tallow for Siberian furs as well as running canteens for the foreign garrisons stationed at Tientsin. He went on to make his enormous fortune in real estate and in construction; he is said to have a hand in many of the buildings along Victoria Road. Part of that fortune went into the construction of this hotel. In a 1938 guide, this hotel was described as "central, moderate priced, semi-residential, run by people who know comfort-catering" It was to become home to many Jewish families who fled to Tientsin from Europe in the decade before WWII as Nazism took hold in countries there. Tientsin, like Shanghai became a place where stateless Jews could land without passports. During the war itself, it became the headquarters of the Communist military in the area. After the Communist takeover in 1949, the hotel was seized by the new authorities and Talati is reported to have died from the exhaustion of trying to wrest his property back. It is now the Tianjin First Hotel.
Castlemaine Railway Station & Old Gaol - Victoria AU
Castlemaine Railway Station & Old Gaol - Victoria AU
The railway reached Castlemaine in the form of the main Melbourne - Bendigo Line in October 1862. This long, classically engineered railway tapped the booming goldfields at Bendigo and Castlemaine and ushered in a new era of transport to the goldfields and towns of Central Victoria. The Old Castlemaine Gaol was a prison modelled on Pentonville (HM Prison Pentonville is a Category B/C men's prison, operated by Her Majesty's Prison Service in the Barnsbury area of the London Borough of Islington, in inner-North London, England); the present building (seen behind the railway station above) replaced the original, designed by Inspector General John Price. The original was built in 1861 to house offenders from the goldfields and nearby towns. The Gaol was closed down in 1990. Since then, the building has been used as a hotel and tourist attraction and currenly serves as the studio for the local community radio station.
