Journalists and a French Concession policeman watching fighting, Shanghai
University of Bristol - Historical Photographs of China reference number: Ro-n0376. The journalists and policeman were on top of the French Waterworks (董家渡水厰) concrete water tower on the border between the French Concession and the Chinese City. The water tower was at the end of Avenue Dubail (corresponding to the northwest corner of South Chongqing Road and Xujiahui Road). Rosholt records that the photograph was taken soon after the body of Philip Pembroke Stephens was taken away by an ambulance. Stephens was killed on 11 November 1937 (see 'North-China Herald', 17.11.1937, and inquest reports on 1st and 8th December 1937). Rosholt’s later captioning for this photograph, typed many years later on its mount, seems to be unreliable and also includes typos (see Ro-s147). A biography of 'The Daily Telegraph' journalist Philip Pembroke Stephens (1903-1937) is at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philip_Pembroke_Stephens. See also Ro-n0555, Ro-n0861 and Ro-n0862.
