Foot-binding was a practice first carried out on young girls in Tang Dynasty China to restrict their normal growth and make their feet as small as possible. Considered an attractive quality, the effects of the process were painful and permanent. Widely used as a method to distinguish girls of the upper class from everyone else, and later as a way for the lower classes to improve their social prospects, the practice of foot-binding would continue right up to the early 20th century CE.

Opium den, Shanghai 1936: Those Zitan wood chairs probably are worth about $3,500 and up.

BTW, on the topic of opium, I think it’s a bit rich how Trump complains the Chinese are supplying opiates in America and Taxing Chinese imports when the west did the same in China and after the Americans overreacted to British tea tariffs. As for Fentanyl coming from China, it’s not prevalent here. There’s no opioid epidemic. I am sure it can be done, but wouldn’t know how to get Fentanyl here. I haven’t heard of it being a problem in Macau or Taiwan and I would challenge you to find it in China. You’d probably get arrested just for asking.

I believe it’s an American problem caused by poor American healthcare affordability that drives people to manage pain instead of fixing the underlying problem, fueled by ads and lobbists and bad doctors. There has always been a lot of addiction in the US because your poor (i.e. mostly everyone) have few life prospects. The Fentanyl only comes into the picture because people’s greed for drugs outstrips what the medical industry can supply.
