Visualising China - images of China between 1850-1950

Visualising China is a unique new free archive of more than 8,000 rare photographs of Chinese life, between 1850-1950.

This JISC-funded project provides access to major collections such as Historical Photographs of China, the Sir Robert Hart Collection and Joseph Needham's Photographs of Wartime China, as well as many previously unseen albums, envelopes and private collections.

NB:  you can:
  • organise your saved images on to "workbenches" (self-registration required)
  • download low-resolution images 
  • add comments and annotations to the images
  • search the collection in various ways - by word, date ranges, photographer, people depicted, maps and classification terms
