“Rev. D. C. & Miss Davidson, Ashiho [Acheng], 1910.”Group portrait of a man and woman wearing winter clothes and standing in the snow. David Cruden Davidson (1880-) was ordained to Manchuria in 1905 and was based in Ashiho with his sister [Mary?]. He married Janet Anderson Watson on 13 July 1911and spent his war service in France with the Y.M.C.A., 1918-1920. ❧ The United Presbyterian Church started work in Ashiho in 1892 and the town, which lay in the Sungari district in the north of Manchuria, was described as having mud walls and being irregularly laid out. James Stobie (b.1869) was appointed to Manchuria in 1894 and served in the Ashiho station with his wife Katherine Kirk Paton. The image is taken during the time of the Great Revival when interest in Christianity was at its height amongst the indigenous population and major inroads were being made into Korea.
