Harbin to Hanoi

Immediately following the establishment of French rule in Hanoi, the new colonial city's development became a focus of attention on the part of both the administration and the French community. The colony's first French language newspaper made frequent reference to the development of the city and problems requiring attention, as well as indicating for its reader-residents issues of concern, even threat. This chapter examines the Local Chronicle column of the newspaper l'Avenir du Tonkin. It focuses on the ways in which it reflected and formed ideas about the city, its public spaces, and its residents, the dangers faced on a daily basis in the city, and the desires for an urban future worthy of the discomforts of the present.
