Photographs: the Siege in Peking [i.e. Beijing] 1900
Scope and Contents
Album of prints of various sizes. These photographs were taken during the Boxer Rising of 1900 by the Rev. C.A. Killie. They form an important historical record of scenes mainly inside the British Legation, including the arrival of the Relief Force. The album is lettered on the cover and although there is no title page or separate text, there are substantial printed captions under the photographs. They are numbered up to 67, but from placing on the pages it is clear that this album never contained the whole sequence.
