NOTES: Following the first Sino-Japanese war of 1894-1895, and the Treaty of Shimonoseki, and the intervention of France, Russia and Germany, Russia leased the Liadong peninsula from the then ruling Qing Dynasty. From 1898-1925 (the length of the lease) Russia set about building a modern commercial port city at Dalian, chosen as it was one of the few in the region which didn't ice up. The Russians intent on creating a 'Paris of the East' renamed it 'Dal'niy'. It is likely the house shown here was built during this period and is now being demolished to make way for new developments.
