Looks good in the snow. ** Greetings from Frankfurt upon Main, Germany
The small trees in front of the mosque probably disappeared when they widened the Tumen Jie and built the square.
But the Qinghua University main building was finished in 1958, right? I have heard staff and students had to wait for the trains when going between the dorms/housing and the main building... :-)
Your comment on locating the place marker: Panoramio wants us to show from where the picture was taken, not putting the marker on the subject itself. And this picture was taken from the mosque's gatehouse roof looking northeast. The location of this villa itself was roughly on the northwest corner of the new mosque recently built (I have not seen that in reality yet!)
