Russian Soldiers - Harbin, Heilongjiang Province, China Featured Harbin Print

Russian Soldiers - Harbin, Heilongjiang Province, China

Harbin, China - the largest city of Heilongjiang Province - Russian Troops. In the territory which was formerly Northern Manchuria and which was heavily populated by Russians as well as Chinese. Almost a Wild West town with transient populations and shifting spheres of demographic influence. Many self-exiled Civil War White Russians ended up living in Harbin. During the Russo-Japanese War - the exact date of this card), Russia used Harbin as its base for military operations in Northeastern China. Following the construction of the Chinese Eastern Railway (financed by the Russian Empire), the Russians selected Harbin as the base of their administration over this railway and the Chinese Eastern Railway Zone. The Chinese Eastern Railway extended the Trans-Siberian Railway: substantially reducing the distance from Chita to Vladivostok and also linking the new port city of Dalny (Dalian) and the Russian Naval Base Port Arthur (Lushun). Date: 1905

Escape from Harbin - July 1900 - Boxer Rebellion Featured Harbin Print

Escape from Harbin - July 1900 - Boxer Rebellion

In 1900, China's anti-foreigner Boxer Rebellion broke out and spread to Manchuria. The Russian Military moved in to quell the uprising. Following the rebellion, Russia was keen to keep hold of territory gained in Manchuria, but retreated in 1902 to keep peace with Japan. Harbin was like a Wild West frontier town, with the populace of 15, 000 Russians representing every strata of society. The 30, 000 Chinese remained segregated from the Russian, particularly following the Boxer Rebellion. This fascinating postcard shows the escape from Harbin of the Russian population of the city in July 1900, when 3000 women children and wounded left on two steamers with barges (seen here) bound for Khabarovsk. Date: 1900
