Object statement
Photograph, George Ernest Morrison with Sun Tienlu, paper / cardboard, photograph by S Yamamoto, Peking, China, c. 1910
George Ernest Morrison, also known as 'Morrison of Peking' and 'Chinese Morrison' was a doctor of medicine, adventurous traveller, and journalist who became resident correspondent of The Times (1897-1912) and political adviser to the President of China from 1912-1920.
The photograph was taken by S. Yamamoto in Peking, China, c. 1910.

Little is known about the Japanese photographer S. Yamamoto, but it is significant that he was the photographer of this important portrait of Alastair Morrison's father, George Ernest Morrison (1862-1920) and his long-standing male attendant, Sun Tianlu. S. Yamamoto worked as a photographer in Peking during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. He was one of the important photographers working in Peking at that time.
This photograph was handed down in the Morrison family to Alastair Morrison (b. 1915), George Ernest Morrison's second son.
