Hsinchu County, Taiwan –


Among a row of old house, it is not very hard to find a unique Baroque-style old building called Hsiaojiang Pavilion next to Dongning Bridge. In the early days, there was a canal nearby. Later on, the locals raised the fund to build a stone arch bridge in 1921 in order to facilitate the transportation. Thus, Hsiaojiang Pavilion was later built that allowed people to rest while waiting for the boats.

Besides offering passengers a place to rest, Hsiaojiang Pavilion was built to facilitate the transportation during the Japanese colonial period. Even though the railway was already long gone, Hsiaojiang Pavilion still stands on here. Hsiaojiang Pavilion is the only remaining station that has witnessed the development of Jhudong Township, as well as the evolution of transport development.

Walking through 80 years of time, Hsiaojiang Pavilion didn’t seem to be weeded out by the progress of transportation. It turns to be many elders’ favourite place for drinking tea, gossiping and playing board games. Tranquility and simplicity are the synonyms of Hsiaojiang Pavilion as it has quietly witnessed the changes in Jhudong.

【景點】竹東僅存的輕便車站 巴洛克風的曉江亭

徐筱樺/新竹縣

  竹東鎮東寧路的東寧橋旁,一整排的老房子中,很難不發現這一座與眾不同、巴洛克風格的老舊建築─曉江亭。早期這附近是運河,後來為了方便通行,地方人士在西元1921年時集資捐款建立石拱橋,而曉江亭則是方便人們等船渡河而興建的茶亭。

  曉江亭不只是供人們休憩的茶亭,日治時期為了方便交通運輸,日本政府因此興建輕便車,也成了輕便車的停靠站,即使現在鐵軌早就已經不復見,曉江亭仍然矗立在這,是竹東僅存的輕便車站,也見證了竹東鎮的發展以及交通工具發展的演變。

  曉江亭受到當時洋風建築的影響,正面為西洋拱圈造型,廊柱為多力克式柱頭,並有拱心石裝飾,拱圈上方的山牆則是以繁複的泥塑表現出西洋的裝飾風格,具有巴洛克風味。走進裡頭一看,昔日牆壁上刻有捐款興建人的芳名冊,經過歲月風化也已經斑駁不堪,更為曉江亭增添了幾分懷舊之情。

  走過80多個年頭的曉江亭,沒有因為交通工具的進步發達而遭到淘汰,反到結合旁邊的伯公廟,成為行人的休憩所以及居民聊天互動的好地方,讓老一輩的人能夠在這,遙想兒時坐在河邊喝茶聊天的過往,也讓年輕人了解過去的歷史。寧靜樸實是曉江亭的代名詞,正如同它靜靜的見證了竹東的轉變。(攝影/徐筱樺)
