University of Bristol - Historical Photographs of China reference number: He-s11. Photo from a folder of loose prints (UoB reference He-s) kept in the School of Oriental and African Studies Archives, London (SOAS reference PP MS 82/16). The photo is an interior shot of the drawing room of the Customs Assistants' quarters at Lappa. See also He01-208 (a slightly different view). There are four or five photographs of the Dowager Empress (Cixi; Tz'u-hsi; Tzu-hsi) on the wall, including a framed copy of another photograph in the Hedgeland collection (See He03-216). Also, the framed photograph on the table is, most likely, RFC Hedgeland's brother Arthur J. Hedgeland, who was born in Exeter, Devon, England, in 1876 (See He03-227).
