Expedition to China & Japan 1870-1911, Part
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 one of the crates dates to 1870. The images are of a
trip taken to China and Japan, photographer unknown. Come
back next week to see what Boyd Flecher unearths next.
