Kirin

Kirin (Jilin; 126.546E 43.836N) was founded as a Chinese frontier fortress in 1673. It remained isolated until the railroad reached the area in 1912, after which the city became an agricultural and lumber processing center. The completion of the nearby Ta-feng-man power plant in the 1930's led to rapid industrialization.

Kirin was also a province of Manchuria, of which Kirin City was the capital in 1941.
