Notes

University of Bristol - Historical Photographs of China reference number: Ro-n0376. This photograph was taken from inside the French Concession, Shanghai, perhaps in Tung Men Road, which ran between Boulevard des Deux Republiques and the River Whangpoo, at the boundary between the French Concession and the Chinese City.  Rosholt records that the photograph was taken soon after the body of Philip Pembroke Stephens was taken away by an ambulance. Stephens was killed on 11 November 1937 (see North-China Herald, 17.11.1937, and inquest reports on 1st and 8th December 1937). Rosholt’s later captioning for this photograph, typed many years later on its mount, seems to be unreliable and also includes typos (see Ro-s147).
