Dalian Power Station Had a Big Chimney!

I was looking at the first picture below the other day – Dalian Power Station in, I think, the early 1920s. Quite a major construction. Then the second picture, which is of the famous “Bankers Circle” where 10 roads converge in downtown Dalian (now Zhongshan, eerrr Square – though it’s clearly round) and where the Yamato Hotel still stands (now the Dalian Hotel), once owned by the Southern Manchuria Railway Company and opened in 1914. In the distance you can see the chimney of the power station….which interested me….
