Photograph album of Thomas Bullock, circa 1880 - circa 1900

Reference Code: GBR/0271/GCPP Bullock 2/1

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.
