In November, 1908, French photographer Alber Kahn set off from Cherbourg in Northwest France and started his world tour. He and his steersman passed by the United States and Japan and arrived in China in January, 1909. By then, the Empress dowager Cixi had just passed away and Pu Yi ascended the crown, while his biological father Prince Chun held actual power. During his 23 days in China, Albert Kahn went to many places and took the earliest photochrome of this country. These photos were precious records of China a hundred years ago, a country that had yet to overthrown feudalism.
