Note(s)University of Bristol - Historical Photographs of China reference number: sw03-074. G W Swire referenced each negative in this album with the prefix B written in India ink. This negative is referenced C61. The album itself has also been archived at some stage with the reference P1/II. On the hulk, which is flying the John Swire flag, are the words 'Ameer Shanghai'. The people in the junks and on the hulk are watching the ship from where GWS took the picture. An air of expectation.
