The Presidential Palace

This palace has a very long history starting during the Ming and Qing dynasty. It was used to house the offices of the President of the Republic of China until 1949. It is integrated into the city of Nanjing with beautiful architecture and gardening complete with pagodas, dollhouse tables, bamboo, and authentic ancient payphones.

Ancient pay phones?! Just because there have been virtually no pay phones here in your lifetime does not make than ancient. The temples may be ancient, but Bell invented the telephone in 1876. By comparison that is modern. Old fashioned is a better term here. At least then I atl not feel ancient since I used pay phones in my lifetime. :0)
