Since 2006 a small team at Bristol University has located, digitised and published online 9,000 historic photographs of China. Twice that number are being processed, and more arrive every month, Mainly sourced from families living in Britain with historical connections to China, these cover the period 1857-1950, range geographically across rural and urban China -- including nineteenth century Ningbo -- and were taken by professionals, talented amateurs and lucky snap-shotters, and form a rich, virtual archive. Robert Bickers, project director, will introduce the project, and its aims, progress and challenges.
