A happy heathen Chinee in Dalny


A happy heathen Chinee in Dalny



Date Created


This Chinaman was photographed by Mr. Barry as he was hurrying across a square in Dalny in response to a call from one of his customers. He was only one of the many Chinese who made a good living by selling dainties, meat pies and sweetmeats, to the Japanese officers. A number of djunks plied between Dalny and the ports of China around the Yellow Sea, supplying the Chinese merchants and peddlers with such goods as they could hope to sell in Dalny and in the camps around Port Arthur, while others attempted to run the blockade of Port Arthur and do for the Russians in Port Arthur the same service. The man in the distance, with the brown suit and wide-brimmed hat, is the famous London Times war artist, Frederick Villiers, who with Richard Barry and James Ricalton, the photographer, who took most of the photographs for John H. Stoddard's lectures, saw all of the siege of Port Arthur.
