"The winter of 1892-3 will be long referred to as the most severe within the limits of Western memory in Shanghai; and as this year, 1893, is the Jubilee of these great Settlements, a pictorial representation of Shanghai in her winter dress will, we trust, be considered both timely and interesting." (A. E. M.). This publication was printed by Ogawa Kazumasa (1860-1929), the foremost publisher of collotype books in Tokyo. It is amongst the rarest photobooks about Shanghai.
