Members may be interested in these images of the north China harbour of Wei-hai-wei that Britain leased for a time and used as the Depot for the Chinese Labour Corps.
The leased territory covered 288 square miles and included the bay of Wei-hai-wei (a fine natural harbour), Liu Kung Tao island and a mainland area of 72 miles of coastline running to a depth of 10 miles inland.
Port Edward on the mainland to the north of the harbour was the British administrative centre. A British Civil Commissioner governed the territory.
A naval depot serviced the Royal Navy's China Squadron.
