EHTA#10387Marble Monument, near Lama Temple

A series of some sixty views taken in and around Peking in October 1874. The views were released under two different titles: Views In China and also American Views. The authorship can be attributed to one or more of the American members of the 1874 Transit of Venus Expedition who were stationed in Peking in the winter of 1874/75. (see research to appear in Terry Bennett’s ‘History of Photography in China: Western Photographers 1861-1879’ to appear late-2010).An important and underrated series of early views of Peking (Beijing). This view is a little frayed around the edges and has red-pen markings on the bottom edge of the mount as shown.
