Notes

University of Bristol - Historical Photographs of China reference number: Ch-s03. This photograph was pasted to a page removed from an old album. This woman may well have been a courtesan (prostitute) and the photograph might have been taken in Shanghai in a photographer's studio. She is holding some gingham fabric and wearing a twisted metal bracelet. See Ch-s04 (same flooring).
