Especial thanks are due to Creative Commincations of Bloomington MN - Jim ullyot Harvard l962 and his assistant Chris Teigen for rescuing this l931 photo of memoir author Sophie Barrett from fragile photocopy and theft of original 1993. The copy I sent them was underexposed, but they managed to capture adequate light for facial detail. Four photos of Sophie in rickshaws from 1931 seem extant - two in Chefoo in August - one in Peking with Jack's old friend Nemo, who recognized him from a previous visit to Sophie's amazement November 1931 -Jack told her "Nemop will recognize me." and that is exactly what happened and this third photo in a ricksha on a busy Chinese shopping area route that might be Tientsin, Peking, or Shanghai.If any old China hand recognizes landmarks in this photo, comment will be appreciated.-John Barrett
