Amoy Hotel [Xiamen], Aug 24.96, 9.15am, bright, F.48, 2 1/2 '', 1896-08-24
Scope and Contents
Plates 68 to 78 show scenes taken in late August 1896 on Kulangsoo, the island south of Amoy (also known as Xiamen). The institutional work of the Amoy mission was centred here as it was found to be healthier than Amoy itself.
There are three missing photographs in the album. These are labelled as: 'Bridge at Tang-Kaan-kiô over Oiû-river. Jan 31.91, 9.15am, raining and mist on hills, F.32, 5 secs' (between plates 23 and 24); 'Phó-chêng 'thô-laû', Feb. 5.92, 7.45am, sunny, F.32, 3 secs' (between plates 30 and 31); 'By Dr Cross, Spring 1895' (between plates 54 and 55).
Also included with the collection is a photocopy of a twelve-page account of the mission's progress to 1906.
