Do you know which stelae that is?

At the extremes of the bridge there are two stone stelae, one recording the history of the renovation work carried out in the reign of Emperor Kangxi (1662-1722), and the other bearing the inscription "The Moon over the Lugou Bridge at Dawn" in the handwriting of Emperor Qianlong.

Peter,
It is the second one.
The four characters correspond “Lu, Gou, Dawn, Moon ”. This stele was a sign-stele of the scene. It was one of “the eight scenes of Yanjing (an old name of Beijing)” (燕京八景),which was a popular appellation dating from Jin Dynasty (AD12C).

Regards
R.J.

I think this is the Kuang'an Gate.

Does it still exist?A lot of Peking's old landmarks were demolished in the 1950s.
