"2 mules carrying a Shen-dz, a sort of sedan chair. Slide from Chris' father's collection. He was a missionary in North China, not far from where Victor & I went to school, in Shantung [now Shandong] province. In south China, we didn't use horses or mules. Nor did we have the "shen-dz" to travel in; we used chairs and boats!" Two mules are carrying a type of sedan chair called a shen-dz on a dirt road.; Captions for this set of lantern slides from the papers of Oliver and Jennie Logan, American Presbyterian missionaries in Hunan, were provided by their daughter Elsa.
