A five-masted Shantung Trader at Shanghai

A starboard side view, just aft of the broadside, of a five-masted Shantung junk with all sails set. The Shantung junk is a type of Northern Chinese junk also known as a Pechili or Kiangsu Trader. A leeboard can be seen due to its flat bottom for inshore work, which gives extra directional stability. As the photograph illustrates, this type of vessel is unique in the stepping of her masts where the foremast and the auxiliary mizzen are fixed to the port side and the other masts fitted to the starboard side. The mizzen is to port of the central line (to clear the rudder post). The sails are supported with bamboo battens, which provide extra strength. Just forward of the junk is an unidentified vessel with 'REGs I9...' painted on the side. There is a small sampan with a man sculling of the trader's starboard bow. In the distance buildings can be seen along the coastline. The original negative envelope was labelled: 'Five masted junk, Shanghai, 1900' and the reverse of the accompanying contact print is labelled: 'A five masted Shangtung junk, Shanghai 1900'.
