About this collection

From the Sir Robert Hart Collection (QUB MS15), this collection comprises c.900 individual black and white photographs in various sizes, 20 albums of photographs, some probably kept by Hart himself but most presented to him, and three books.

 

Most of the photographs date from 1900 because many of Hart’s earlier photographs were destroyed during the Boxer disturbances. Many have the names of persons or places and, sometimes, other comments inked on the back in Hart’s hand. A substantial number are of family, garden parties, Customs officials, etc ... Hart apparently liked his activities to be recorded by a professional photographer, but there are also many of note with regard to China.
