This image is one out of a group of original albumen photographs of Shanghai in the 1890's. The image is in sepian tone with strong contrast, and with fine details. It shows the known semi-bird eye view of the garden at the Bund with a resting pavillion on the left and tennis court on the right. More scarely it covers the enclosed wall around the English settlement in the distance as the detailed image showns. The image has an ink title: Interior. Garden & English Settlement, Part of Enclosing Wall in the distance. The image is matted on a thick board, photo size is 8 3/4x10 1/4 inches. With excellent condition. Circa late 1870's to 1880's. I think the image was taken by a professional hand judged the quality. Shipping is $10.00
