Two 1920 Marine Photo Albums American Legation Peking China 400 Images
Two 1920 Marine Photo Albums American Legation Peking China 400 Images. Pvt I/c Joseph Hahn was a member of the 4th Marine American Legation at Peking China in 1920. There are 400 photos that really flesh out his service and places he visited and things he saw and experienced. Some were pretty gruesome as pictured but the others paint quite a picture of life at that time and in those places he visited. His journey started in Mare Island California and then to Yokohama and Nagasaki Japan where he photographed spots of interest, next to Cavite, Philippine Islands And finally to Peking, China. In China there were Military Legation troops from many other countries and Pvt Hahn photographed the m too. He photographed everything from daily routine to Outlaw firing squad executions, beheading for robbery, and death by 1000 cuts for rape. One photo I found of special interest is a woman reclining next to a huge anaconda after it had consumed a large meal. B iggest snake I have ever seen. There are many photos of Chinese culture and sacred p laces.
