"Journey on the river, in a hakka boat, from Moiyen to Swatow (Mrs Meister and an English lady)."

I find this picture fascinating, because these women are making the same journey that my Koung Koung made in 1936; the riverboat trip from Moiyan to Swatow. The possible dates for this photo range from 1937-1948, so I like to think that this might have been the same sort of boat that he took.
"On the Moi river up to Meihsien."

I chose this photo as it shows the propulsion method for the riverboats - the gondoliers of the Moi River!
"Bridge of ships near Kaying."

I love the ingenious use of boats here!
