Chinese camp peddlers


Chinese camp peddlers



Date Created


Just when the photographer was ready to press the bulb, a Russian shell burst fifty yards to the right of the group, and the two older boys turned their heads to look and ducked their shoulders a little, while the man and the youngest child took no notice whatever. It was not often that luck favored the photographer to a similar extent. These four people peddled Frenchsh vegetables and eggs throughout the Japanese camps around Port Arthur. They lived in the neighborhood villages. The three boys were orphans, their parents having been killed in the terrible days in May, 1904, when the Russians were driven along the peninsula into their stronghold, Port Arthur. In the background is seen a viaduct forming part of the Manchurian Railroad, of which Port Arthur was the southernmost terminal.
