Brining chickens to the market at Dalny



Date Created


This picture represents a street in Dalny. The man at the left is a Manchurian merchart, for whom a coolie is carrying on a long bamboo pole two immense wicker baskets containing chickens and ducks. The two men are hurrying toward the market place, where they expect to sell the fowl to the Japanese officers, who are glad of the chance to vary their bill of fare, which ordinarily consists of rice, dried fish, bacon and tea, like that of the common soldiers. These merchants scoured the country for hundreds of miles around the peninsula of Liaotung for chickens, eggs and other table delicacies, and always found a ready market for their wares at Dalny. And the same was true of the other, larger army under Nodzy, Kuroki and Oyama, who drove Kouropatkin and his 400,000 men northward toward the Siberian frontier.
