Children played soccer until an errant ball ended up on top of a low shop roof and the proprietors chased the player away without retrieving the ball. Photographs by Jim Mendenhall shot for the 1989 Day in the Life of China book. His assignment was to cover a major industrial city, Tsing Tao. One of his few assignments was to shoot the Tsing Tao brewery but the workers were on holiday the day the book was shot. What turned out to be his primary assignment was a murder trial.
