Life Around the Yangtze River, China in the 1910s

The Yangtze River is the longest river in Asia and the third-longest in the world. It’s the longest in the world to flow entirely within one country and its river basin is home to one-third of the country's population.

On a trip up the river from Chengdu, an American photographer who was a missionary in China took some photographs documenting everyday life around this river in the 1910s.
