A photograph of portrait sketches of foreigners, Peking, 1877

A photograph of portrait sketches of foreigners, Peking, 1877. Henderson collection, DH-s019.

This intriguing montage photograph (DH-s019) of forty sketched portraits of foreigners and one photographic portrait, is labelled “PEKING CHRISTMAS 1877”. Their faces can be studied more closely at DH-s020, DH-s021 and DH-s022.

Most of the photographs in the Henderson collection came with no captioning information. We would be most interested to know who are the distinguished-looking men and women in this remembrance of a Christmas in Peking – and the name of the artist.
