Old Chinese Photo Album with Li Hongzhang Photo.

Antique Japanese lacquer photo-album, well filled ( both sides front and reverse) with photos from the end of the 19th century.

Remarkable are the photos with Li Hongzhang or Li Hung-chang 李鸿章 (1823 – 1901), who was a leading statesman of the late Qing Empire. He quelled several major rebellions and served in important positions of the Imperial Court, including the premier viceroyalty of Zhili. In the 1860s he visited Germany, meeting Bismarck and Wilhelm II.

The other photos are mostly about this group of artists, who visited China and performed there. Some photos of military, ship crew and even a photo of Coatham Road Redcar (UK), probably the hometown of the group.

The album is 7,4 x 5,4 inches (18,7 x 13,4 cm). Folding album with one fold separated and another roughly repaired. The photos are mostly in good quality.
