Robert Hart was fascinated by photography and communications.

So it is only fitting that you can now find Sir Robert Hart on Flickr.


The Flickr selection includes this delightful 1907 snap of Robert Hart with his band, along with over a hundred other photographs from late 19th and early 20th century China.

These are just a small selection from the full Robert Hart photography collection, which includes over 2,000 images.

  1. Dear Sir,
    I am Mr. Pingfu Hu from Tianjin China and researching the early chinese brass band. Sir Robert Hart’a band is one of the most important bands. The first bandmeister Mr. Bigel is vrery important too. I got some materials about them in China, but the picture of Mr. Bigel and the music score, which the band played. Especially some pieces composed from chinese melodies by Mr. Bigel, like: Waltz-Tientsin Echo, Galop-Tientsin Races, Fantasia- Tientsin Minstrels, Chinese Fantasia- So-na, Imperial Chinese Anthem, Sinfa Polisa Chinese, Chinese Selection-Ma-ma Ni hao hu to rtc. Can you help me to check your collection of Sir Robert Hart in order to find the picturies of Mr. Bigel and the music scores?
    Best Regards
    Pingfu Hu
