18 Rare Vintage Photos Documented Everyday Life around the Yangtze River, China in the 1910s

The Yangtze River is the longest river in Asia and the third-longest in the world. The river is the longest in the world to flow entirely within one country. It drains one-fifth of the land area of the People's Republic of China (PRC) and its river basin is home to one-third of the country's population. The Yangtze is the sixth-largest river by discharge volume in the world.

On a trip up the river from Chengdu, an American photographer who was a missionary in China took some photographs documenting everyday life around this river in the 1910s.
