A wooden crate containing 34 boxes of glass and nitrate
negatives was shipped from an unknown source to the Museum in
1985. The crate indicated a date of 1907, but paper found
inside the crate was dated 1870. The images are of a trip taken to
China and Japan, photographer unknown. Most intriguing is an
image of prisoners being transported by police who have tied the
prisoners braids together to prevent escape.
