Photograph of British man and Chinese boys aboard ship



Silver gelatin print by unknown photographer, ca. 1920. Image shows a British man (possibly W.E. Wakeham) wearing a pith helmet and smoking a cigarette while smiling at the camera. He is surrounded by young Chinese men and children on the deck of an unidentified vessel. Presumably a Blue Funnel Line ship. Part of collection of William Ernest Wakeham, purser, Blue Funnel Line.
