This is an album of a soldier in the U.S. Army, Arthur Williams, who was stationed in Peking (Beijing) as part of the foreign military forces during the Boxer Rebellion. The photographs date from ca. 1905. Williams took many photos of noted sights, including the Forbidden City. Most have penned captions. Each photo appears to have been hand-colored, something travelers ordered from photo developers in China during that period.
