Escape from Harbin - July 1900 - Boxer Rebellion Featured 23 Feb 2012 Print

Escape from Harbin - July 1900 - Boxer Rebellion

In 1900, China's anti-foreigner Boxer Rebellion broke out and spread to Manchuria. The Russian Military moved in to quell the uprising. Following the rebellion, Russia was keen to keep hold of territory gained in Manchuria, but retreated in 1902 to keep peace with Japan. Harbin was like a Wild West frontier town, with the populace of 15, 000 Russians representing every strata of society. The 30, 000 Chinese remained segregated from the Russian, particularly following the Boxer Rebellion. This fascinating postcard shows the escape from Harbin of the Russian population of the city in July 1900, when 3000 women children and wounded left on two steamers with barges (seen here) bound for Khabarovsk. Date: 1900

I won't - After a raid on the British lines in Northern France, a Gordon Highlander is being interrogated by German Officers. . Fortunino Matania, Ri (1881-1963). One of the most accomplished realistic illustrators and artists of his time, his wartime work was immensely popular and appeared in nearly every major news magazine, Allied, Neutral and Central Powers alike. Literally tens of millions of readers saw wartime events through the medium of Matania's weekly illustrations and, as such, he played an important role in defining people's mental image of what Great War battlefield scenes and soldiers looked like.
