Tientsin was formally opened to Great Britain and France in 1860. Between 1895 and 1900, Britain and France were joined by Japan, Germany and Russia in establishing self-contained concessions in Tientsin each with its own prisons, schools, barracks and hospitals. Tientsin was captured by the rebels during the Boxer Rebellion in 1900 and subsequently recaptured by the Western allies.
