Creation: 1901

James Ricalton photographed sites, survivors, and daily life in October 1900 in Peking after the rebellion for Underwood & Underwood. Troops posted in Peking found distractions at the YMCA with games, coffee, lunch, and books. The Y provided similar services to occupying American troops in Manila during the Spanish-American War. Ricalton intended his 100 images to make the viewer feel "quite at home among the streets" of Peking.
