University of Bristol - Historical Photographs of China reference number: JC-s016. Post card published by M. Sternberg, Hong Kong. The caption on the post card is wrong. Most probably all these babies are Japanese. Photomontage made in 1893 by Esaki Reiji (1845 - 1910), who had a portrait studio in Tokyo. Esaki Reiji's collage is entitled: Collage of Babies, One Thousand and Seven Hundred Children That in Three Years Came to My (Photographic Studio's) Shop.
