    Very cool pics. Not that it’s the point, but it’s interesting to note that the two pictures are at significantly different scales. Notice the the two distinctive buildings in the lower left of both frames, and the clock tower that is in the bottom right of the top frame but the middle-left of the bottom frame.

    Hugh, you are right, the perspectives are different. However, when I took the 2 photos into Photoshop and aligned them correctly, the scenery was, if anything, even scarier, the towers even higher. And their number is undisputable. Thinking about it, that was 20 years ago! Not a bloody century - it is what has changed since I learned to be a merchant in a German/Chinese joint venture. This was such a different country then.
