The heart: the factory
The factory owns the land. Factory workers live around the factory.
In a previous article, I showed you Xinkaipu district factory in Changsha.
Today this factory is gone. Instead real estate company builds at its place modern buildings. Time and society change.
A few pictures of factories from different districts:
Habitations around the factory
Workers lived with their families in appartements provided by the factory.
Workers lived according to the factory where they worked! and depending on their position.
Each housing has a number.
Here we can see the building number inside a white circle.
Here we can read the building number written in Chinese on the wall.
Workers have small gardens where they grow vegetables.
The district school.
