On offer is a super, original (7 x 8 in.) photo diary of a group of Canadian United Church missionaries on a trip to India and China. The trip starts with the sea voyage aboard the Empress of Russia steamship from Vancouver to the Aleutian Islands, Japan, Shanghai, Hong Kong and on to Singapore and India. There are 30+ black and white photos, a small number of color or colorized pictures with handwritten captions for each one and several diagrams of the Missionary camps and one super drawing of attendees to a large council meeting with all named. While the author is not specifically identified they do a superb job naming each and every person in the photos. There is some rubbing and chipping to the cover, the interior is very good but one or two pictures seem to have gone missing but otherwise all are accounted for. Overall G+.
