Object information

Physical description

A black and white photograph bearing the caption "B.A.T. Mess Yunnanfu as seen from the train just before reaching the station. The buildings in the right hand section of the group are B.A.T. In the front garden are 2 Australian Eucalyptus gum trees. There are any number of these trees in the province & this grows remarkably well. The 'original' tree was imported by the French missionaries and seedlings from the tree have spread (been taken) to lots of other places. The tree is very popular with the Chinese".
