Port Arthur - Red Cross Tent.
Red Cross tent at Port Arthur, near to the foundation stone for a new Red Cross Hospital to be built on the site. Port Arthur (modern Lushunkou) is a district in the municipality of Dalian, Liaoning province, also called Lushun City or Lushun Port, formerly known as Ryojun. During the Russo-Japanese war, the Russians surrendered Port Arthur to the Japanese after nearly a year's siege: the Japanese expended 58,000 killed or wounded to obtain the town.
