Description
"Part of the crowd who came to see the aviator and his machine. The soldiers were on guard - but you see how they kept the crowd off. City wall and mountains in the background. Haichow Nov, 1914." [Identification by Dr. Ruth B. Morgan.] Two Chinese guards are surrounded by a crowd of Chinese in Haichow [now Haizhou].
Lorenzo and Ruth Bennett Morgan were American medical missionaries in the Jiangsu and Anhui provinces of China, serving under the Presbyterian and Methodist mission boards from 1905 to 1946.
