Notes

University of Bristol - Historical Photographs of China reference number: Pe01-047.  This photograph of the King of the Beggars, or the Chief of a Beggar Guild, was probably taken in or near Shanghai - maybe at Longhua Temple?  See another photograph of him in J.R. Chitty 'Things Seen in China' (Seeley & Co, London, 1909). See JC-s176 and JC-s179.
