Tinted lantern slide featuring a level view of the Great Wall of China, probably near Beijing. The wall is a series of fortifications, and parts may date from the 7th century BC. The wall was built from east to west in order to keep out incursions from the north. Although largely destroyed, the most famous area of the Great Wall was built by Qin Shi Huang (259-210BC), the First Emperor of China from 220 to 206BC. The slide was developed by the Photo Department, Tientsin Hui Wen Academy, Tientsin, China. This slide comes from a collection held by the Church of Scotland and generated by the medical missionary Charles Somerville, who worked for the London Missionary Society in Hankou from 1904 to 1914.
