Photo from an album (UoB reference He03) kept in the School of Oriental and African Studies Archives, London (SOAS reference PP MS 82/14). Hedgeland provided no caption for this photo. However, the newspaper cutting pasted into the album from the London 'Evening Standard' on 23 September 1935, entitled 'River Death Riddle of a Davis Cup Captain' suggests that this is a photo of Mr Wing Lock-Wei's bride and her attendants. University of Bristol - Historical Photographs of China reference number: He03-046.
