China, 1900 - 1911
Scope and Contents
82 x 82 mm. colour glass slides. Reproductions of engravings of people and buildings, probably dating from the nineteenth century. The slides retain their original numbers. A slip of paper with the collection bears the name of Rev. G.F.C. Dobson. George Francis Clement Dobson was born in 1869, and after taking his degree at Cambridge University, became a teacher. From 1900 to 1909 he served as Assistant Master at the CMS Anglo-Chinese School in Shanghai (Acting Principal in 1907), when he presumably acquired the slides. Ordained in 1911, he held curacies and livings in England until 1939.
