British fleet at Wei-hai-wei [i.e. Weihai], 1908 - 1915
Scope and Contents
A view looking across towards Weihai Harbour (from Liu-Kung-Tao?) where the battleships of the British China Squadron are at anchor. In the foreground are cultivated fields and small houses. Weihai, ceded to the British in 1898 'for so long a period as Port Arthur remains in the occupation of Russia', was the northern naval base of the British China Squadron, and in fact remained in British hands until 1930.
