LBZ in the National Museum of China


.
The new 中国国家博物馆 in TianAnMen is pretty good: I over stayed, hence made me late for my next appointment – the Capital Museum.

In one of the show rooms, under the banner 洋务派兴办的近代军事工业概况表 (1863-1890), it listed:
浙江机器局 in Hangzhou was created by Liu Bingzhang 刘秉璋 in 1883 that produced 子弹,火药, 水雷 bullets, gunpowder and [submarine] mines.
