Event description

Description

The Cheng Yu Tung East Asian Library and the Richard Charles Lee Canada-Hong Kong Library cordially invite you to a ceremony and reception on the official opening of the Canadians in China: Old Photographs from Sichuan 1892-1952 in partnership with the Canadian School Alumni Association of the Canadian School of West China.

This extraordinary exhibition is a display of archival photos and stories covering sixty years of Canadian missionary work in China. This photo exhibition is a gift to Canadians from a group of Chinese historians, artists and corporate donors. They began collecting and curating The Old China Photo Project in 2007 in order to explore a history lost during China’s post-revolutionary period. The result is a fascinating pictorial record which recognizes and appreciates the courageous Canadians who made Sichuan their home over 100 years ago. Many of these professionals contributed significantly to the medical and educational modernization of China, and all left a lasting footprint and a long legacy of friendship.
