Chiefly professionally photographed views of China and Japan. Many are in and around Hong Kong, with a few of Canton. A view
of beheaded pirates is present. Japanese scenes, some of which are hand-colored, include views as well as posed scenes of
figures engaged in traditional activities such as massage treatment, or women in a "cook house". 8 views in Alaska or the
Yukon are present, dating from the gold rush era (ca. 1898-1900). Includes snowy streat scenes in a mining town and waterfront
storm damage, possibly in Nome. The 17 California views consist of Catalina Island (by Noren Swenson), the Mount Lowe railway,
missions, Westlake Park, the Hotel Del Coronado and 3 unidentified stream snapshots.
