Faces of China c1890s…

This handsome-looking group of women is one image from an album of photographs c1890, acquired by a Scottish man serving in the colonial British army there at the time. We’ll never know who they are exactly – perhaps three sisters and an attendant? Notice the tiny bound feet peeking out from under the elaborate clothing. The photograph is believed to have been taken by Scottish photographer John Thomson.
