95 glass plates and 60 stereoscopic... - Lot 65 - Lynda Trouvé
95 glass plates and 60 stereoscopic plates of Tonkin made by a private individual between 1922 and 1927.
From 1922 onwards, stereoscopic shooting equipment was marketed by a Hanoi photographer-merchant. It is in this context that a photography enthusiast acquires one of these cameras. Between 1922 and 1927, he undertook a long trip to Northern Tonkin and China, particularly in the Yunnan region, the terminus of the Hanoi-Yunnan Fu railway line. He produced a large number of images related to this trip.
A testimony of exceptional technical and aesthetic quality made by an enlightened lover of China and Tonkin in the 1920s.
With views of Hanoi, street scenes, temples, characters, views of Tonkin and Upper Tonkin, with many images of ethnic groups from Upper Tonkin and China.
Very good general condition, several cracked plates. Presented in two binders and in two original boxes.
