University of Bristol - Historical Photographs of China reference number: Ep02-069. The woman on the left is in a coracle-like tub, probably harvesting water caltrop (Trapa natans or Trapa bicornis), also known as buffalo nut, ling nut, or more generally, water chestnut. Looking on are three rowers (probably members of the Shanghai Rowing Club), who are, in turn, watched by two children. See OH03-010.
