Johns, Thomas Collection

The two photograph albums in the Thomas Johns Collection were owned by Thomas Joseph Rowett Johns (1882-1947), who served in the Chinese Maritime Customs Service (CMCS) from 1903 to 1937. Johns served on the CMCS fleet of revenue cruisers. It is likely that Johns took many of the photographs in this collection. Ninety-nine images, of Dairen, Chefoo and Shanghai especially.
