The sterns of two different types of Foochow trader junks anchored at Shanghai

A close view of the after parts of the Foochow trader type junks 1021 and 0667 anchored abreast at Shanghai. The photographer is abaft the sterns looking to port and slightly forward. The nearest junk is numbered 1021 and also has a small board with the number 34397 on it. Only part of her waist and poop are in the picture. Her main and mizzen sails are stowed and she has a boat on outriggers over the highly decorated transom. Alongside 1021 is the junk 0667 and she appears to be a vessel of a larger type and also has a boat on outriggers over the transom. The tops of their masts are out of the picture. Negative number P34375 is another view of their sterns from a different angle.
