Historical Photographs of China album reference: Hv46. Rev. Claude L. Pickens, Jr.'s trip to northwest China, part 1. General note: Excerpt from unpublished photo essay, plate 37: "In bandit-ridden areas the mosque must protect itself. This is one outside the South Gate of Yu Wang, Ningsia, not only had this small fort but also local Moslem militia to protect it. During the summer and fall of 1936 the Communist[s] held the city; one wonders what happened to the mosque." Access to original photographs and albums in the Rev. Claude L. Pickens, Jr. Collection is restricted. Photographs and images from the collection may be reproduced only with written permission. Contact the Harvard-Yenching Library for permissions and fees.
