Notes

University of Bristol - Historical Photographs of China reference number: RD-s188. The ‘the better 'ole’ in Davidson’s captioning on the back of the photograph is a reference to Bruce Bairnsfather’s most famous First World War cartoon, "Well, if you knows of a better 'ole, go to it". See http://blog.maryevans.com/2013/04/the-better-ole.html. This digital copy of the original faded photograph has been flipped, so it is now the right way round. See RD-s052 and RD-s055.
