A disused community hall in the notorious 'Cancer Village' just outside Linfen, one of the most polluted cities in China. The village was nicknamed by Chinese news sites after the area's high rate of cancer-related illnesses (possibly caused by pollution from nearby industrial plants) was made known. Supplying a large part of the nation's energy, Shanxi is considered to be the centre of China's expanding coal industry.
