H. C. White & Company produced remarkable stereoviews of Beijing. Hawley C. White and his sons, Harrie and Clarence White, established the firm in New York in the 1870s. The sons and teams of expertly trained photographers traveled the world making stereoview photographs that were later to be sold as part of the series “White Travel Tours.” The company won the highest award for stereographs based on artistic merit and high quality at the Exposition Universelle in Paris in 1900. The Loewentheil Collection includes a large selection of H. C. White & Co. photographic proof sheets of Beijing with editorial markings.
