'King of the Beggars', Shanghai
University of Bristol - Historical Photographs of China reference number: Pe01-047. This photograph of the ‘King of the Beggars’, or the Chief of a Beggar Guild, was probably taken in or near Shanghai - maybe at Longhua Temple? See another photograph of him in ‘Things Seen in China’ by J.R. Chitty (Seeley & Co, London, 1909). See JC-s176, JC-s179 and JC-s369.
