People enter Shenzhen, southeast China's Guangdong Province, via Lo Wu Bridge lying on the borders between Hong Kong and Shenzhen, on Aug. 22, 2010. Built in the early 20th century, the two-storey bridge has witnessed the corruption of Qing Dynasty, the colonization of Hong Kong, the establishment of the People's Republic of China, the implementation of Reform and Opening-up Policy, and the handover of Hong Kong. Today, an average of 250,000 people cross the bridge per day, accounting for nearly a half of the total cross-border passengers in China. (Xinhua/Chen Yehua)
