New old stone


I found this stone with [S]oochow April 1901 in the old town, inside an overbuilt courtyard house at Xitangjia Lane (西唐家弄). Formerly, there was a Xu family ancestral temple here. The Xus were numerous and had several shrines throughout the city, and a large domain at Xujiahui. I'm not yet sure about the connection of the stone to its location; it coule have been dragged from elsewhere.
