Random Picture No 73 – Tall Tales

Random Picture No. 73 is one in a series of pictures, taken in Liuzhou, which amuse, baffle or otherwise interest me.

Firestation and Diwang

The white building in the foreground is Liuzhou Fire Department’s HQ and fire station. It was built in the 1960s and was, at the time, by far the tallest building in the city. Designed as a look-out station, it was possible for anyone on the top floor to survey the whole city, looking out for fires.

Today, it is dwarfed by several nearby buildings, but particularly by the new Diwang Tower being built just behind it. This is now not only the tallest building in Liuzhou, but the tallest in Guangxi (until they build the next one).

    Wonder if that’s causing any , er , ‘personal’ problems amongst the firemen ?
