[VIETNAM - PHOTOGRAPHS OF HILL TRIBES].
[A Collection of thirteen postcards with images of different ethnic minority groups]. About 1920s.
. The collection of b/w photo postcards (14 x 9 cm) illustrate different ethnic tribes from the highlands in the northern parts of Vietnam (Tonkin). At this time Vietnam was a French protectorate with a French governor. These minority groups still live in the remote mountainous terrain cultivating rice, vegetables and some are raising animals. The people always wear traditional clothes, more or less colourful, whether at home, in the field, or in town. The clothes of one group are quite different from that of other groups. The pictures depict people of different tribes in traditional clothes including Hmong, Tay, Nung, Dzao, Yo and Yao (Dao), from the provinces of L Cai (5), Cao Bng (4), Son la (1), Ha Giang (1), Huyn (1) and Yn Bi (1). Some of the cards have names written in French and Chinese on the verso.
