Frederic William CAREY (1874-1931) served in the Chinese Maritime Customs, 1891-1928.  These thirty images were taken by Frederic Carey in 1896-1902 in Yunnan province and in the Burma/Yunnan border area. Carey (then Commissioner of Customs, Ningpo) gave a lantern slide lecture in Ningpo (Ningbo) on 9 February 1922, on ‘Native Life on the Burma-Yunnan Frontier’. A set of Carey's lantern slides entitled 'Yunnan' is in the collection of the Royal Geographical Society, London, as well as a pamphlet ("With a Camera in Yunnan"), map and other photographs.
