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 General note: Excerpt from unpublished photo essay, plate 25: "The Moslem veil in China, such is seen throughout the Northwest; Kansu, Tsinghai and Ningsia. The neck and head are covered but the face is left exposed. Brides wear green veils and sometimes cover their faces. Such head coverings are not seen in the coastal provinces."
