Farewell to Danshui’s Oldest Street

文字-A A +A

Danshui Township in Taipei County is a place thatsimply brims with culture and history.  Chongjian Street, the oldest street in Danshui, probably best epitomizes and captures this historical atmosphere.  However due to the town’s regeneration plan,the street unfortunately seems doomed to vanish.  Danshui’s Cultural Foundation called on all former residents of Chongjian St or indeed anyone with deep sentiment towards this issue to gather on the 30th of May in the old street for one last group picture –in remembrance of the old street.

On the day, even though the rain poured down, at the allotted time the street filled with locals, young and old, bringing with them awarm-hearted and peaceful atmosphere.On the eve of the disappearance of the old street, the people used the medium of posing for this picture to express their defiant mood and dissatisfaction. 

Scholars and those connected with the arts also strongly hope that through this group photograph they can awaken the sentiments of even more people towards this issue, to look deeper and consider whether or not Danshui’sChongjian Street should be appropriately preserved.

(以下為中文原文)

台北縣淡水是台灣一個文化鄉鎮,蘊含了豐富的文化內涵,而淡水的重建街是當地歷史最優久的街道,卻因為都市更新,面臨拆除的命運。

淡水文化基金會號召了曾經住過這條街,或是對於這條老街具有感情的民眾,在530下午聚集在老街上,一起和老街拍張紀念照片。當天雖然下著雨,但是時間一到,人群站滿了重建街,扶老攜幼,氣氛相當溫馨。民眾透過拍攝大合照來表達對於老街即將消失的不捨,文史工作者也希望藉由拍攝紀念照的方式,喚起更多人重視並且思考,老街是否應當要適度保存。
