Excerpt from Map and Short Description of Tientsin

Both geologic conditions. And references in Chinese writ ings-l lead us to believe that Tientsin was at one time, proba bly not more than years ago, a village on the sea coast.

The system of navigable waterways branching from Tientsin, especially the Grand Canal, which was built about years ago, made it a ?ourishing place at an early date. The growth of the place to political importance appears to date back to the first year of Yang-lo, Ming Dynasty (a. D. When it became a Wei or fortified post}: In the third year of Yung Ching (a. D. 1726) it became a Chou or sub« prefectural city, and in the ninth year of Yung Ching (a. D. 1732) it became a Fu or prefectural city, governing one Chou and six Hsien.
