AMERICAN ARMY IN CHINA PHOTOGRAPHIC ALBUM.. AMERICAN ARMY IN CHINA: Tientsin, Peking, Shanghai, Hankow, Hong Kong &c., ca. 1.
SUPERB PHOTO ALBUM OF THE CHINESE CIVIL WAR: The Communists led by Mao Tse-tung, vs. the Kuomintang [KMT] or Chinese Nationalist Party led by Chiang Kai Shek. The United States Supported the KMT. In this album, we see how the KMT soldiers hosted the American Army in China, using their trains and military bases throughout China. * This unusual album contains 400 original b. w. photographs & and is an historic photographic record of American military deployment showing Dough-boys in China, probably from the U.S. Army's 2nd. Battalion, 15th. infantry, per the flag and insignia found on a group formation photograph. A minority are with written captions, by and large taken by the person who made the album, also enhanced with a small percent of professional Chinese photos, some of which have in-negative captions. * There are ca. 3 or so photos missing else completely filling 32 pages or 64 sides + one on the inside back cover. The inside of the front cover has five attractive period color luggage type adverts from various hotels: Hotel Lankershim & Coast Line Military & Naval Hotel San Francisco, Cal; The Court Hotel, Tientsin North China; Grand Hotel des Wagons Litz; Astor House Hotel Ltd., Tientsin. * The album begins with photos of a Chinese playing a Pi-pa [snake skin banjo], then there are three other photos: first two show a Chinese military camouflage train engine from which a Yank soldier in his campaign hat descends, and a long train of cars with a large howitzer mounted upon one, last shows French [?] troops at parade rest with their rifles and white gloves and crested helmets with anchors [naval or marines] with others in the background with some officers. * The next two pages show Chinese coolies swing a basket from the creek top water a field, a mother suckling her baby with her family at the farm, a large water tower in the wet slums and a group of Doughboys at attention in formation, they wear boots, leggings, chrome World War I type dress helmets, a rifle, back pack with bayonet, cartridge pouch belts with green wool hip-length jackets. The opposite page shows another view of the Chinese military train, a pair of large mounted guns on an armored train car. To the right is a Chinese officer pointing to a large pierced hole in the train with a foreign engineer peering out from the small window. The train sports the Republic of China flag with a Chinese military unit flag painted on the side. Another view shows a group of abandoned Chinese coffins that went to the dogs; a group of soldiers in garrison caps at attention with fixed bayonets as the officers salute someone near the person taking the photo, some Chinese officers also present. * Next 2 pages show Chinese on a wheel barrow, some Japanese women by a pond in Kimono and a group of British troops from their colonial Empire: blacks, Indians, white trumpeter, Chinese, and others with musical instruments all wear white cork-type pith helmets. A group of Japanese officers mugging for the camera. Photos of the railhead and large number of Chinese troops with rifles, and kit at the railway station, some on march carrying their flags others in open box cars with touring cars that are on the move, another of camouflaged armored train cars, one shows a number of foreign soldiers looking out of a train car window, some are with tiny embossed stamp at right corner: "Mei Lee Tien Tsin." * The album continues with a mixture of images of civilian Chinese, Chinese military, their trains, moving air planes, weapons, war refugees in tents, military views of barbed wire fortifications, trenches, machine gunners Russian soldiers, Chinese officers, Chinese air force, funerals, rickshaw pullers, camel trains, captured & wounded prisoners, foreign soldiers at their sand-bagged posts. Photos of the great wall, magnificent Chinese architectural monuments, buildings and pagodas, religious icons, coffins, more coffins, mortars & Chinese junks and a plethora of others. * The American Consulate General's compound in Tientsin, American military band welcoming the newly arrived replacement troops. A large photo group shot of the American officers seated for a memorial photograph, with their Battalion flag proudly posted on the wall where they pose [source of our citation at the top of the unit name]; two buglers are at each outside position, the commander is ram-rod straight and taller than all others seated in the front & center; he and only two others on his sides wear full leather knee boots, probably indicating the highest ranking officers; others are in boots & leggings. * Photos of Doughboys aboard a ship showing the Naval officers with one stunning photo of an American high officer with his Japanese & Chinese counter parts posing for the camera. And a photo of the "Mail Boat Gazun Panama" and a few others of Panama giving credence to the fact that some of these soldiers came from the American East coast via Panama to San Francisco, then on to China. Nice photo of semi-nude Panamanian family, men, women, children. Doughboys at target practice, photos of Chinese poverty, coolies pulling great loads and street vendors. * More showing Chinese life style, street life, horse & bullock carts, and yet more caskets left in the open unburied and abandoned, train cars full of horses, Chinese troops, smoke rising from a burning city, another with "Tian jin" written in Chinese, catholic church, more parading of American soldiers within the Tientsin American Consulate parade grounds, trooping of the colors. And a nice photo of the "U.S. Army Transport Thomas," Chinese junk &c. A U.S. soldier in a necktie, his rifle at fixed bayonet at parade-rest before the Consulate General compound with sand bags, inside a photo of a U.S. soldier with his Colt-45 on his hip with canteen looking at some communications connections, another photo of two mini U.S. tanks, and a very long bridge over the water. * Photo of the Tientsin downtown with a Sikh Indian policeman directing traffic. Next page shows a public Chinese street execution: the guilty on his knees with the executioner ready to swing a very large sword and another headless corpse is before him, the Tientsin YMCA compound, opposite which is likely the inside of the American Consulate offices showing very ancient typewriters and three women staff and one other female Navy person. They all mug for the camera with a good number of U.S. Army or Marine officers, behind three desks. * Chinese hauling "magnum gold" brand ammunition on hand- trucks, a U.S. Army band performing before the Consulate's office. At this point, we find a few photos with penned captions: "One of China's Department Stores [it shows a bird vendor]; Peanut Gambler [a mountain of P-nuts]; Chinese Shimboo [photo of the office and maker of the album and his Chinese officer friend ?]; "A Chinese Taxi" [shows him in a Rickshaw], "Me and the boy friend 11/3/28" [shows a tiny goat cart carrying a child's coffin with a Chinese man. This penned date gives substantial proof of the date range of the entire album which was placed about the center of the whole work. * The next page shows two more penned captions: "Chinese cavalry" and "Note mud house and fence" [shows two Chinese officers on horse-back and a very, very poor house with very starved animals]. The next shows six Chinese undercover men, two each holding a Chinese being readied for execution; and a very grizzly photo of a Chinese officer actually executing a Chinese man with his pistol who is seated on a rock: the photo captures the action as the shot blows away the mans brains. Behind the execution scene is a crowd of American soldiers in campaign hats and Chinese military officers who are witness to the event. * More views of Chinese street life, vendors, pullers, haulers & horse carts, religious icons and a stunning Chinese roofed gate, more Chinese troops on the move via train, with a very horrible view of a large number of dead Chinese in the muddy filthy wa...

Schlesinger, Toni: Five Flights Up and Other New York Apartment Stories, Princeton Architectural Press, ISBN: 1568985851
einige Lagerspuren Editorial Reviews\n\nFrom Publishers Weekly\nI knew rooms were just a lot of stage sets, Schlesinger writes of taking on the Village Voice Shelter column in 1997. The drama taking place behind New Yorkers' drawn curtains, Schlesinger reveals in this selection of interviews, is varied and vivid: bizarre, unhappy, frenetic, obsessive, euphoric, awkward, and endless. Divided into 15 sections, the book captures people at a moment in time, before 9/11 and after, telling the deeply personal stories that lead to new addresses: stories of death, ambition, love and rent control. Schlesinger finds a man with a 129-pound rubber band ball, a 105-pound pet pig in Brooklyn and a man who has turned his living room into a giant pinhole camera. Manhattan's density, Schlesinger notes, is 871 times that of the U.S. as a whole. Rents are as sky high as the architecture, which explains why a family of four might keep their rent-stabilized 295-square-foot studio in Little Italy. Sometimes Schlesinger enters homes and smells gas, sometimes dumplings, and it's not uncommon for her to make interviewees ill at ease. Don't you want to write about the apartment? one man asks. Her associative ramblings aren't binge reading material, but the book's Spartan design and casual, if bizarre, banter offer sliver-sized glimpses into the epic stories of New York lives.\nCopyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.\n\nProduct Description\nA ﬂop house, a pumping station, a maid's room, a homeless center, a former brothel, a Richard Meier building, a circus trailer, a sail boat, a skyscraper, buildings named Esther and Loraine just a few of the places New Yorkers call home. For the past eight years writer Toni Schlesinger has been bringing us these conversation places in her weekly column in the Village Voice. Through her incisive questioning, original writing, and comic parallel reveries, Schlesinger creates miniature documentaries on the lives, passions, hopes, and heartbreaks of many of New York City's millions.\n\nFive Flights Up chronicles people living in New York's extremes, occupying 150-square-foot spaces, paying over half their income for rent, living eight in an apartment, and taking showers in twos to save time. These are people who make movies in their living room and then sleep in it later. They surround themselves with their baby teeth, with 500 volumes of Moby Dick, plaster rabbis, birds' nests, 30 modernist chairs, 50 loaves of Wonder Bread, and more. In Schlesinger's hands, their stories are much more than novelties.\n\nArtists, actors, dancers, librarians, social workers, bus boys, bankers, porn stars, au pairs, urban planners, bakers, shamans, masseuses, web designers, and students come alive when they discuss where they came from and where they're going. Each interview is a vivid and insightful portrait, revealing the creative energy, camaraderie, desperation, and hope that fuel the daily lives of people in New York and everywhere. , ISBN-13: 9781568985855
