University of Bristol - Historical Photographs of China reference number: Wr-s093. Corpses lay unattended on the battlefield after the revolutionaries had lost Hanyang to the Qing army. The clothes of the dead may have been scavenged by the poor in Hanyang or nearby villages. See The Birth of a Republic - Francis Stafford’s Photographs of China’s 1911 Revolution and Beyond by Hanchao Lu (University of Washington Press, 2010), page 89, where this photograph is reproduced.
