Between 2006 and 2021, historian and widely acclaimed author Robert Bickers and colleagues at The University of Bristol ran a unique project that sought out privately held historical photographs of China digitized them, and published them online.

Over 22,000 photographs, ranging from the late 1850s to 1950, are now available on the project's platform; many more were copied and are not yet published. In this Zoom talk and discussion, Robert Bickers will discuss how and why the project evolved, and where it goes from here.
