A Pictorial Record of the Qing Dynasty Manchurian Railway records the early stage of the Manchurian Railway (1906-1911), covering its operations along the railway and in its accessory lands. Consisting of 500 photographs taken from Lushun Museum's special archive on the Manchurian Railway, the book provide first-hand resources for studying the history of Japan's invasion of China dating from the late Qing Dynasty. After winning the Russo-Japanese War, the Japanese founded the Southern Manchurian Railway Corporation to build a railway system based on the former Russian-owned railway. Centered on Dalian, the railway extended to many parts of northeastern China. At the same time, the corporation also initiated a large-scale development of mineral mines, ports, towns, and villages along the railway. Originally taken to build up the archive for the Manchurian Railway Investigation Department, all the photographs collected in the book are clearly dated, information-packed, and of exceptional academic value.
