Poor......but wise.  I'm sure he could tell the rich bureaucrats a thing or two.   Photo by T. Enami.  Enami photographed in China, and had a branch studio in Hong Kong.  Enami's views of China, Hong Kong, Singapore, and the Philippines are very rare today.  For more on the photographer see : www.t-enami.org/  From a group of original 1895-1935 glass lantern slides depicting scenes and people in pre-WW2 China. The coloring is not mine. They were tinted by hand using fine brushes at the time…
