RUSSIAN FAMILY IN CHINA. Two Photograph Albums. N.p.[Harbin], 1916-1955. 2 photograph albums with over 200 b/w photographs of varying sizes. 2 vols. 28x18 & 25x17 cm. 2 albums
GBP 1,200.00
Two albums comprising a rare and fascinating insight into the life of a Russian family who lived, it seems, in Harbin and possibly later in Shanghai in the first half of the 20th century. The family were probably White Russians who fled the Russian Revolution. Such a visual record of life in the Russian community in China is extremely rare. The photographs are notable for the lack of Chinese in the photographs. However, Russian communities outside their homeland are known for being very close-knit and disinterested in the life of the locals. It would appear that the family did travel to a limited extent or were involved in business that required it. There are scenes of Shanghai in the early 1930s, Tsingtao (Qingdao) in 1940, railway scenes, a station in Manchuria. There are a good number of photographs of Harbin, particularly of flooded streets dated 1932 and family photographs inscribed Harbin with a date.
