Diary of Far East Travels 1924-1944

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Travel diary scrapbook of Fred Satterfield, of the National City Bank of New York, Far East Division, documenting his time in China and Japan in 1924 when he was sent by the bank to Tianjin (Tientsin), China. The opening page of the scrapbook reads "By way of explanation of this book, it occurred to me that since I would probably be stationed at, or go through many Far Eastern cities, it would be interesting to keep a sort of photographic diary of my travels. In other words, a photograph album with the usual titles enlarged on, so that a stranger could go through the book and not have to have each picture explained, as is usually the case". Satterfield's placement in Tianjin afforded him the opportunity to witness firsthand the armies of Zhang Zuolin, referred to by the American Press as Marshal Chang Tso-lin, Tuchun (Warlord) of Manchuria, fighting in the vicinity of Tianjin. Photographs include one depicting "Chang's" soldiers entering the city of Tianjin, one documenting soldiers on the march, and two of soldiers behind barricades. Of the fighting, Satterfield states, "the guns could be heard plainly in Tientsin [Tianjin]". The scrapbook also includes three photographs documenting the executions of two individuals, one by beheading and two before and after an execution by shooting. Satterfield writes "The war-lords are absolute in their power and their word is law for this particular district...The number of executions per day was often alarming...The easiest way for the 'Generals' to dispose of their rivals is to silence them for ever". The majority of the photographs, with detailed explanations, include significant locations and monuments within China and Japan including photographs of the Forbidden City, and photographs of Satterfield and his family, friends, and colleagues. Scrapbook is hardback format, covered in brown paper, with off white paper and photographs glued or mounted to the paper with self-adhesive photo corners. Scrapbook - 13 1/2" H x 8 3/4" W x 2 3/4" D. Early/mid 20th century. Provenance: Private collection, Knoxville, TN. (Additional high-resolution photos are available at www.caseantiques.com)

Condition Report: The cover of the scrapbook has been repaired with clear packing tape. Scrapbook and contents of scrapbook exhibit wear to be expected from age.
