Category:Album of Hongkong Canton Macao Amoy Foochow

Album of Hongkong Canton Macao Amoy Foochow: Source: [1]. It is a book containing pictures, that once belonged to George Ernest Morrison. Contrarily to what the source website mentions, these pictures were most probably not taken Morrison.

A manuscript note at the beginning, presumably written by Morrison states: "Album of 115 photographs of Hongkong, Canton, Macao, Amoy, Foochow and neighbourhood, taken about 1870, including the Amoy Races Groop, 1868". If these dates are correct, the photographs could not have been taken by Morrison, who was born in 1862.

Furthermore, several photographs have a name printed on them, for instance "Floyd" and "Miller". See the Milton Miller and William Pryor Floyd entries at [2].

Finally, several websites are explicitely attributing some of these pictures to others than Morrison, for instance this photograph is attributed to Floyd here.
