Tips: Once upon a time in China: Xianfeng reign depicted by foreigner tourists
In 1850, China’s Qing Dynasty Xianfeng Emperor (Xianfeng: “Universal Prosperity”, 1831-1861) was having a difficult time. In 1851 Taiping Rebellion exploded and spread rapidly in several southern provinces, threatening the stability of the Empire itself. Xianfeng efforts to crush the revolt were strong, with limited success. Images were taken by foreign tourists and published in various Western newspapers. Some damaged pictures have been retouched by hand.

Nel 1851 la Ribellione dei Taiping esplodeva e si diffuse velocemente in numerose province meridionali, minacciando la solidità dell’Impero stesso. Gli sforzi di Xianfeng per stroncare la rivolta furono ingenti, ma ottenero poco successo. Le immagini sono state scattate da turisti stranieri dell’epoca e pubblicate su alcuni quotidiani occidentali. Alcune immagini danneggiate sono state ritoccate a mano.
