Tsing Tang

Original sailor's chest and historical Chinese album (around 1908) from Quingdao, formerly owned by Joseph Suhmann (great-grandfather of Kirsten Kötter).

Historical portraits of marine comrades, historical and current images of Chinese politics and digitally worked sea views fill the gaps of the historical album from the then German colony Tsingtau and the sailor's chest of the German marine.

Originale Seemannstruhe und historisches chinesisches Album (um 1908) aus Tsingtau / Quingdao von Joseph Suhmann (Urgroßvater von Kirsten Kötter).

Historische Porträts der Seemannskameraden, historische und aktuelle Bilder zu chinesischer Politik und digital verfremdete Meeresansichten füllen die leeren Stellen des historischen Albums aus der damaligen deutschen Kolonie Tsingtau und die Seemannstruhe des deutschen Marinesoldaten.
