Tientsin: area between Japanese Concession and Chinese section; wheelbarrow

Notes

University of Bristol - Historical Photographs of China reference number: Gr01-073. Two images on one post card. Rather than being a beggar, the man has a tool and a basket on his back - he may have been collecting animal dung from the roadway, for use as manure or fertiliser in agriculture (see piles in background).
