MORE ABOUT THE SPEAKER: Beijing Postcards was co-founded by Lars Ulrik Thom and Simon Rom Gjeroe, who first indulged their passion for Chinese history by collecting visual interpretations of China such as photographs, prints and maps.  Many of these artefacts were discovered outside China because they were originally taken, drawn or published by foreigners.  Lars and Simon have also written books on  Beijing's history, culture and architecture, and Lars conducts talks, walks and research on the varied layers of history in China's ancient capital.
