Robert Henry Chandless arrived in Shanghai from New York around 1900 to join the British import-export firm of Pool Lander. His collection of photographs of China in the early 1900s include candid scenes and tourist views of Peking and Tientsin; foreign legations and private residences of American, British and other diplomatic personnel; the wool industry in Tientsin; and contemporary views of the Boxer Rebellion (1900) including images of the international relief force of soldiers and sailors that came to the aid of the besieged foreign delegations in Peking and elsewhere.
