Historical Photographs of China album reference: Hv46. Rev. Claude L. Pickens, Jr.'s trip to northwest China, part 1. General note: Excerpt from unpublished photo essay, plate 27: '"Do not divide the Moslems and Chinese" is the slogan written on this gate of Hao Tien, Kansu [Haodian, Ningxia Huizu Zizhiqu]. Through this gate most of the traffic between China proper and the Northwest, including Sinkiang, must pass. The Old Silk Road between Cathay and Stamboul passed through and halted while it got strength to climb the famous Liu P'an Mountains ahead. Near here at San Kuan K'o Ghenghis [sic] Khan gave a fatal blow to the Sung Dynasty.' Access to original photographs and albums in the Rev. Claude L. Pickens, Jr. Collection is restricted.
