Abstract

“I have often thought about the question: ‘What makes a city glamorous?’ Certain cities, Paris, Peiping, New York, San Francisco, have a certain ‘it’ that most cities lack. One of the factors of a city’s appeal, I think, is concerned with geography…On its narrow peninsula where the Chaling joins the Yangtze, Chungking rises on its steep bluffs out of the mists of its rivers.†[17 “On an island in the Yangtze…is the Chungking winter airport…In February’s low water the island was al’ but connected with the Chungking shore.†[21]
