I am back in Datong for more research here. I already studied this city quite a lot. Among the things I saw when I lived there last year, there was this old factory, standing in front of a newly built compound, making quite a big contrast on the landscape. According to the nice old man working in it as an accountant for a cement company, it was built in the 1970s. The production got interrupted more than ten years ago. And it got completely demolished fifteen days ago. Therefore, even if there are not good, I want to share some photos of this place, which was also used for stocking bags of cement. That is why there was a lot of cement dust in this place, and because of it, my camera got really dusty which explains that my photos lack clarity.
This is what the place looks like now.
