Notes

Historical Photographs of China album reference: Hv45. Dr. Samuel M. Zwemer's visit to China, part 2. Second part of an album containing photographs taken by Christian missionaries Claude L. Pickens, Jr. and Carter Holton.

General note: Excerpt from unpublished photo essay, plate 7: "Minaret of the chief mosque in Sining, Tsinghai. At this capital of the province a terrible rebellion of 1895 occurred which destroyed all ancient relics of Islam. This beautiful new tower, capped by a crescent forms a fitting part of the mosque area."

Access to original photographs and albums in the Rev. Claude L. Pickens, Jr. Collection is restricted. Photographs and images from the collection may be reproduced only with written permission. Contact the Harvard-Yenching Library for permissions and fees.
