Wonderful archive of Francis Stafford's photographs of China in 1909

In a great and enlighetened (as well as well-funded) move the Stanford Libraries have made the complete collection of Francis Stafford's photographs of China available online in hi-res, fully downloadable. What joy! I used to scan the book The Birth of a Republic to get photos like this:


Little East Gate (Baodaimen) in 1909 or prior.

The only weakness of this digitization project – no captions. No locations, dates or personalities.
