Walter C. Lowdermilk Gansu Corridor Photographs
Click the link below to view an ArcGIS map containing 60 photographs taken by Lowdermilk in August 1943 while travelling in Northwest China’s Gansu corridor (河西走廊).
I am wondering about the stele pictured in the photo above, but have not researched the question in earnest. Caption reads:
Kansu Province, China. The Corridor. On the divide between the Yellow River and the Gobi Desert stands the ruins of a temple built at a guard station along the Great Wall. This monument describes the happenings along the Great Wall. Aug. 25, 1943
