The old building with the brick wall falling off is faintly visible. The baroque style is exquisite in the past. The carving on the outer wall of the house is still fresh. It has auspicious meanings such as bat, pomegranate, plate length, gold plaque and peony. Foreigners build Western art here. At the same time of the building, we still do not forget to infiltrate the Chinese characteristics, which seems to be a foreshadowing of the integration with Harbin life.
Gloomy rainy days, these old buildings that have been "forgotten" still have some residents, the most striking is the "old lady barbecue", which is placed in the door of an inconspicuous dark alley. A charcoal-blackened grill, the old red signboard is so conspicuous, this is one of the most traditional and ancient brands in Harbin, and many people are full of childhood memories. These ancient buildings outside the
old roads connect people's past years with today's life. The surrounding modern houses and shops are more or less blended. The blue iron skin around the dangerous houses forms a wall. For example, the "Baroque" has become a thing of the past, but the roof of the wall rises high and seems to be trying to integrate today.
The preservation and continuation of the Baroque memory outside the old road makes visitors more intuitive and feel the ancient memories and history of Harbin. But the decline of the building also tells the bleakness of the bustling. At that time, several old people were holding fans and discussing the architectural art on the old house. They lamented the exquisite carving, lamented the passage of time, lamented the neglect of youth, and suddenly found out when people left. These abandoned buildings are so beautiful and so precious.
But I guess, what they really miss is not just the beauty of architecture, but the memory of youth, the life of the past. No matter which lane you cross, you will see a familiar shop, such as the cooked food shop, Harbin Red Intestine Shop, Tofu Shop, Harbin Grandma Grill, old cinema, etc. These shops are now available everywhere in Harbin. But the memory of the shops belonging to this place has long ceased to exist. People who are unwilling to leave are still living in these "small and ugly" old houses.
