<p>Photographs taken by Joseph Needham on the long journey to the southeast from 8 April to 1 July 1944, when he and SBSCO staff member H.T. Huang (Huang Hsing-Tsung / Huang Xingzong) 黃興宗 travelled from Chungking (Chongqing) 重慶市 through the provinces of Kweichow (Guizhou) 貴州省, Kuangsi (Guangxi) 廣西省, Chiangsi (Jiangxi) 江西省, Kuangtung (Guangdong) 廣東省 and Fukien (Fujian) 福建省 and back. They did not travel all the way by truck, and he only took photographs sporadically. There are also some photographs (in SE3) taken in Chungking in March 1944 before the journey. The films and their photographs were not originally labelled in strict chronological order. Some sections of the negatives have not been developed because there are no images on the negative or because any images present are too severely damaged or indistinct.</p> <p>These images are also available to view in date order here [<a target='_blank' class='externalLink' href='http://www.nri.cam.ac.uk/JN_wartime_photos/se.htm'>link</a>] . Dr. Needham records this journey in his journal (<a href='/view/MS-NRI-00002-00005-00012-00002/1'>NRI2/5/12/2</a>). A typescript of his report to the British Embassy on the trip can be viewed here [<a target='_blank' class='externalLink' href='http://www.nri.cam.ac.uk/wartime_extras/Needham_Southwest_Journey_Report.pdf'>link</a>] , and a full itinerary here.</p> <p>Further information and resources are available about Needham's time in China from 1943-1946 as Director of the Sino-British Science Cooperation Office here [<a target='_blank' class='externalLink' href='http://www.nri.cam.ac.uk/JN_wartime.htm'>link</a>] .</p>
