This collection shows some of the earliest photographic city views, such as Rio de Janeiro, Singapore and Shanghai ... and shipping scenes from around the world such as Brazil, Canton and Naples ... The collection ranges in date from the early 1950s [i.e. 1850s] with the view of Rangoon by Linneaus Tripe ... to the 1920s and 30s in the one-plate panoramas taken of Canton by the Afong Studio."--P. 4.
