Photographs

The Sir Robert Hart collection at Queen’s includes several thousand photographs, mostly of China around 1900, along with portraits of Hart and his friends, acquaintances and colleagues.


A selection of photographs from the collection is on display in the China’s Imperial Eye exhibition and accompanying catalogue.

The handlist for the photographs (MS 15/6) is here.

Selected images are available online here. The Project is currently working on the photographs and more will be available in the future.

A selection of annotated images from the collection can be viewed on the Queen’s Special Collections Flickr site.

  1. Congratulations on getting this up. The Chinese edition of my book on Hart and his Carrrall women friends, published in 2012 in association with QUB, is not yet out but soon should be. Your photos, letters and diaries were a treasure trove for it.
