Payne (Oskar Birkett) views of China
Series II. Glass negatives, circa 1924-circa 1929 7.5 Linear Feet (15 boxes)
The series contains 723 glass negatives. Numerous glass negatives depicting temple interiors with sculpture in situ were variously labeled either Anting or Longhua, and many depict identical items, although apparently taken in different years. Analysis of details in these images suggests that this group of images represents either the Longhua temple complex in Shanghai or an unidentified temple in or around the 1920s village of Anting.
Place names are given as written on original mylar sleeves in an unidentified early-20th century transliteration system (i.e. not Wade-Giles or Pinyin). Current Pinyin place names, when they differ, are supplied in brackets.
The glass negatives (G1-G732) are organized first by province, and then city.
