Photograph album of Thomas Bullock, circa 1880 - circa 1900
Scope and Contents
The volume comprises sepia photographs mounted on album pages. They include views of Paris, Malta, Port Said, the Suez Canal, Colombo, Cairo (the Pyramids), Aden and China; also cathedrals in southern England, including Winchester and Salisbury. These appear to be copies of photographs by commercial photographers, a few of whom are identified. Photographs from China include some general views, particularly of Beijing [described as Peking]; also Tianjin [described as Tientsin]. There are also photographs of British diplomatic premises and social events in Beijing (including the British Legation) and Shanghai, and of Thomas and Florence Bullock and family [probably including their daughter Nan and son Guy as very small children, although there are no keys to names]. Many of the photographs are not dated: a very rough estimate has been supplied for these, based on an assumption that the album was put together broadly chronologically.
