[Untitled Collection of Photographs]

[Photographer unidentified].

Esashi, Hokkaidō: Asakura Shashinkan, [ca. Shōwa 11 (1936)].

 

A collection of 24 photographs capturing various groups that travelled to Esashi, Hokkaido, to view eclipses in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Many of the photographs feature a woman who is almost certainly Zou Yixin (邹仪新, 1911-1997), a Chinese astronomer and professor at Sun Yat-sen University who is known to have visited Esashi as part of the Chinese team observing the eclipse on June 19, 1936. This team and a team from the Kwasan Observatory at the Graduate School of Science of Kyoto University, are known to have observed the eclipse at Esashi, where the Amherst Expedition headed by Professor David Todd observed an eclipse on August 9, 1896. Several photographs of this earlier expedition are also included. 

 

Twenty-four photographs, housed in a postal envelope. Light browning to extremities, occasional marks. Some sticker remains to versos. Each photograph measures approx. 12.5 x 7.2 cm.
