Rarely-seen sand-table model of Beijing city from more than 60 years ago is under repair as part of the local archive authority’s efforts to preserve and protect old Beijing culture from July to September 2013.

The city’s only sand-table model, detailing the original layout of Beijing city in 1949 when the People’s Republic of China was founded, could be a good choice for people to get a glimpse of its history.
