Eileen Chang's mother and one maid, [s.d.]. Women in this age had thier feet half bundled. My mom is several years older than my aunt so the way of bundling is different. (The person standing in the back must be the maid.) -- "Dui Zhao Ji", p 020
张爱玲的母亲和婢女的照片,[s.d.]. "民初妇女大都是半大脚,裹了又放了的。我母亲比我姑姑大不了几岁,家中同样守旧,我姑姑就已经是天足了,他却是从小缠足。(见图。背后站着的想必是婢女。)踏着这双三寸金莲横跨两个时代,她在瑞士阿尔卑斯山滑雪至少比我姑姑滑的好(我姑姑说。)"-- 对照记,p 020
