University of Bristol - Historical Photographs of China reference number: Sw02-016. G W Swire referenced each negative in this album with the prefix B written in India ink. This negative is referenced B12. The album itself has also been archived at some stage with the reference P1/I. In GWS's album index entry for this negative, he wrote 'Ngankin' (The word 'Kiukiang' was deleted, but also underlined and the word 'Ngankin' entered instead). However, this is not a photo of the steamship 'Ngankin'. It is possible that GWS took this photo from the river steamer 'Ngankin', which served the Lower and Middle Yangtze between Shanghai and Hankow.
