Archive from famed Italian journalist Giorgio Torchia. He collected missionary photographs from the 1920's and 1930’s. There are 1050 photos in total, along with some maps and documents from missionary photographers. Almost all of the photos contain captions. A number of different missionary societies are mentioned as well as specific missionaries and Chinese notables. A remarkable archive of social upheaval and conditions existing in China during the 1920’s and 30's. It appears that Torchia was assembling these photos for a purpose beyond his own personal collecting as many of the photos contain cataloguing info on the back. t-cmo009jIf the archive was split up and each photo sold individually or grouped on themes it would fetch well over $60,000. A very rare find.
