If you are into missionary history in China and/or Chinese orphans, these albums may by ideal for you. SEE more PICS AFTER THIS DESCRIPTION. I did not take pics of all pages but took pics of representative pages. Having 21 pages with 182 photos, this album is 11 by 7 by about 1 inch thick and is the most complete of the 3 (as in loaded with photos). Photos range in size from 1½ by 2½ to 3¼ by 5 ½ inches. Years mentioned are 1919, 1923, 1925, 1927, and 1930. Places and people (when decipherable) include Mr. Munroe (Munroes appear in internet searches connected to missionary work), J. Rose, Herbert Hoh, Mary Friske, Robert Morrison grave in Macau (first Protestant missionary to China), Canton, O. Church in Canton, Pastor Au, Munroes Mission, our home in Koon Shan [Kunshan], Hebron Mission School in Kunshan, Birds Nest in Kunshan, Sai Chiu Mountain, Hong Kong, Cheung Chow Island [Cheung Chau], and Elizabeth Howard. Types of photos include the countryside (irrigation water wheel), we nine missionaries, studying Chinese, native coffin, carrying water, boat with tagged sail, orphans at Munroes Mission, execution soldiers, men and women standing or sitting, mountain scenes, bathing in streams, school groups, kids, babies, temple grounds, funeral scenes, orphans on the mountainside, deaf & dumb boy with blind boy, travel scenes on the way to and from Canton, scenes in Parks of Canton, Miller House, more orphans, Industrial work in Kunshan, girl posed with a bunch of toy dolls (page captioned Tutored in Hong Kong when we were unable to go to the countryside 1927), beach of Cheung Chau Island, pets (cats), cute little girl ready for school and in the garden and ready for church, inland sea Japan, photo captioned Peniel students, teachers, missionaries. Bible School opened 1929, summer at no. 27 Cheung Chow Island, Asbury Trio at Mr. Reitons home in Hong Kong, and Turner children in a rickshaw. Photos are pasted on the pages, and only a few have loose edges. Album smells musty and old with typical wear for something almost 100 years old as seen in pics. Some pages are crumbling at the edges, and some are loose from the binding. Covers are loose or free of the spine, and someone tried to tape the spine with electrical tape.
