Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The two albums contain 175 black and white photos related to the career of Father Linus Lombard C.P., a member of the Passionists (a Roman Catholic religious order) who served as a missionary in China for several decades (ca. 1931-1954), in Hunan (湖南) and Hubei (湖北) provinces. The photographs (many with handwritten captions) are mostly scenes related to the mission's buildings and staff. There are also many shots of various locales and scenes of everyday life among the populace in the two provinces, primarily in Hankow (Hankou) and other areas along the Yangzi (Yangtze ) River. Among these are images of the city of Wuhu, Japanese gunboats in Hankow, the Hankow Bund (the bund usually refers to the waterfront area adjacent to a wharf or quay), "River Folks" and their boats, a roadside barber and others. A number of photographs relate to the flood of the Yangzi in 1931 which claimed the lives of 145,00 inhabitants of the area.
