This is a collection of online materials focusing on the photographs taken by Scottish photographer John Thomson (1837-1921) during his travels throughout China from 1868 to 1872. The materials centre on a richly illustrated essay by Allen Hockley about Thomson and his views of China. Linked to various sections of the essay are an image sequence from Thomson's 'Upper Yangtsze' trip, a set of photographs about tea production, and another set illustrating ways in which the photographs were varied. The images illustrate and support ideas put forward in Hockley's essay.
