The two albums titled Bo lan Zhonghua tu zhi document the lifestyle of the British foreign service community in Beijing, Tianjin (Tientsin), Hankou (Hankow), Jiujiang, and Yantai (Chefoo), and also include views of well-known monuments and sites in Beijing, Hankou, and Ningbo (Ningpo) during the late nineteenth-century.
Background
The British diplomat, Herbert Francis Brady (1854-1924), had a long career in the British foreign service. Stationed in China, he started out as a student interpreter in 1876, and went on to hold senior posts in Jiujiang (Kiukiang), Huangpu, Yichang (Ichang), and Shanghai, culminating with his appointment as Consul General in Fuzhou (Foochow), the principal Chinese port, in 1906.
