As we digitise more material, more connections are elicited.  For example, a photograph (BL04-71) in the recently copied Love collection was captioned in the album ‘Great War Memorial Wei-Hai-Wei’.  Seeing this photograph brought to mind a photograph in the Ruxton collection (Ru-s087) – which shows a detail of the very same memorial.  However, the Ruxton photograph came to us without any captioning; thanks to the Love collection photograph we now know that this is a First World War memorial, in Weihaiwei (Weihai).

Many thanks to Terry Bennett for locating Wi02-04 and Ta01-14 (as blogged).

Also to Special Collections at SOAS for information including the location of OH03-010.

Another useful recent discovery is the location of the pagoda in OH02-27 (as blogged).

The revised location information on the Historical Photographs of China database will soon appear in the relevant entries on Visualising China too.

A big thank you to everyone who has helped with various known unknowns.
