Four Chinese boats are on at a narrow passage of the Ing Tai River. One boat is being pulled up the rapids while the other three sit idling. Written on the back of this photograph: "Ing Hok [Ing Tai] River sampans. The man on the group of boats unite [illegible] the boats up one at a time. The one in the rapids is being pulled up and these are waiting their turn. Ned. Ing Hok. 1914."; This photo is from the papers of the Edward Huntington Smith family, missionaries serving the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions in China, 1901-1950, primarily in Ing Tai and Foochow [Fuzhou].
