Japanese-era photos of Taiwan

Here are two fascinating online collections of old Taiwan photos hosted by Lafayette College in Pennsylvania. The web addresses are very long so I won't mention them in the book.

The Gerald Warner Taiwan Image Collection has photos taken by Japanese anthropologists and others during the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s. A great many of the pictures feature aborigines in traditional clothing.

The Michael Lewis Taiwan Image Collection has some even older pictures and many that are in colour.
