'Junks in French Concession, Shanghai, 1900'

A distant view of a large number of junks moored at Woosung in the French Concession.

The shoreline, in the background, is lined with many houses of different styles and types. Some seem to have jutting balconies over the river and are made of timber, while others are stone built with Chinese-style gables.

The original negative envelope was labelled: 'Junks in French Concession, Shanghai, 1900' and the reverse of the accompanying contact print is labelled: 'Woosung, Sept 25th 1900'
