Stereoscopic images of turn-of-the-century China

Here is a lovely collection of stereoscopic images of China by James Ricalton taken in 1900–1902, generously put online in hi-res by the Museum of New Zealand. Ricalton's photos were accompanied by a book (online at archive.org) describing each image in detail. There are several views of Shanghai as well.

"A street of "flower boats," places of amusement and debauchery, Canton, China."
