 光绪四年的李鸿章,威风凛凛,不怒而威

 

中外皆呼李中堂

1、1869年,李鸿章访问英国

When Chinese Grand Secretary Li Hung Chang visited Great Britain in 1869, he brought back a gilded Singer as a gift for the Empress Dowager. The Birmingham Gazette celebrated this event with a poem:
Now every moon-eyed maiden
Will sigh for wardrobes laden
With machine-stitched cloth and seam
Like the happy Chinese Queen


Empress Dowager

When the Empress Dowager was later accused of inciting the Boxer Rebellion against the "foreign barbarians," her Grand Secretary said that was impossible. The queen was in her chambers, preoccupied with her sewing

Viceroy LI  overcame conservative opposition in the Imperial Court and gained permission for the line to be extended 50 miles all the way to Tientsin (Tianjin) {天津} and detailed planning commenced immediately. Kinder as Chief Engineer of the now newly named “China Railway Company” (with WU Ting Fang still as Managing Director), was then permitted to secure the services of several more foreign engineers which included Resident Engineers A.W.H. Bellingham and W. Watson and Asst. Engineers T.W.T Tuckey, D.P. Ricketts, A.J. Arch and A.S. Vowell. The whole project was completed within 14 months, opening in August 1888.
