Dongguan Bridge, a covered bridge in Yongchun, Fujian

Notes

University of Bristol - Historical Photographs of China reference number: Mx03-143. Cadbury Research Library archive finding number: DA26/2/2/2 (John Preston Maxwell Papers). The photograph in the album was 'reversed' (i.e. pasted into the album up side down). The digital copy online here is the correct way round. The Dongguan or Tongxian (Eastern Pass) covered bridge still stands. Tang Koan Kio is the Minnan pronunciation of the pinyin name. In the foreground is the Huyang River. The centre section of this bridge was severely damaged by a flood in 2016 - see: http://www.qzcns.com/qznews/2018/0104/511752.html. See also Mx03-141.
