University of Bristol - Historical Photographs of China reference number: HD-s43. The all-male cast is named left to right (character name followed by real name). The plot of 'The Chimney Corner', a domestic drama, by H.T. Craven can be gathered from a detailed report in the 'North-China Herald' of a performance by the Amateur Dramatic Club on Tuesday 3 June 1873, at the Club Concordia (NCH 7 June 1873). However this performance had a different cast from HD-s43. Chitty (sic) should be Mr Charles Chetty. See HD-s44, HD-s45 HD-s46 HD-s47, HD-s48 and HD-s49.
