About this collection

120 black and white views of Peking, Chinese life and character, and British settlement in China. This collection of glass slides, in three boxes (A, B, C), is part of the Iron’s gift associated with the Sir Robert Hart Collection.

 

Box A consists of 50 tinted slides, many of which were produced by the Lantern Slide Bureau, Methodist Episcopal Church in China. The slides illustrate daily life in China, the Summer Palace, scenes around Peking and a festival event. This collection seems to have been collected by Mrs Kathleen Newton, Sir Robert Hart’s god-daughter.

 

Box B comprises 42 black and white sides. The slides illustrate various aspects of daily life in China – farming, transport and a range of sailing vessels – warships, tugs and junks.

 

Box C consists of 66 black and white slides illustrating various Chinese scenes.
